Traces of God?

When the waters saw thee, O God,
when the waters saw thee, they were afraid,
yea, the deep trembled.

The clouds poured out water;
the skies gave forth thunder;
thy arrows flashed on every side.

The crash of thy thunder was in the whirlwind;
thy lightnings lighted up the world;
the earth trembled and shook.

Thy way was through the sea,
thy path through the great waters;
yet thy footprints were unseen [(ועקבותיך לא נדעו)].
