46A

God is our refuge and our strength

God is our refuge and our strength,
our ever-present aid,
and therefore though the earth should move,
we will not be afraid;
though hills are thrown into the sea,
though foaming waters roar,
and though the mighty earthquake moves
the mountains on the shore.

2. A river flows whose streams make glad
the city of our God,
the holy place in which the Lord
most High has his abode;
since God is in the midst of her,
unmoved her walls shall stand,
for God will help at break of day,
when trouble is at hand.

3. The nations rage, and kingdoms fall,
but when his voice is heard
all earthly power shall melt away
before his mighty word.
The Lord of hosts is on our side,
our safety to secure;
the God of Jacob is for us
a refuge strong and sure.

4. O come and see what mighty works
the hand of God has done;
come, see what desolation great
he brings beneath the sun.
To utmost ends of all the earth
he causes wars to cease;
the weapons of the strong destroyed,
he makes a lasting peace.

5. ‘Be still and know that I am God,
set over all on high;
the humbled nations of the earth
my name shall magnify.’
The Lord of hosts is on our side,
our safety to secure;
the God of Jacob is for us
a refuge strong and sure.
