This coming Shabbat is Parashat Beshalach, including Shirat Ha-Yam, the song of the crossing of the sea into freedom in Exodus 15. Every day at our morning and evening services, we sing two excerpts from the song, from the exact middle and the end:

Who is like You, majestic in holiness, awesome in praises, doing wonders?
Adonai yimloch l'olam va'ed
Adonai rules through all time and space, forever
