The sea looked and fled, the Jordan turned back;
The sea looked and fled; The Jordan turned back.
The Red Sea saw them coming and hurried out of their way! The water of the Jordan River turned away.
Sea took one look and ran the other way; River Jordan turned around and ran off.
The sea saw it, and went in flight; Jordan was turned back.
The sea looked and fled; Jordan turned back.
The sea saw it and fled; Jordan turned back.
