God Our Refuge.

Psalm xlvi.

God is our refuge and our strength,

When trouble’s hour is near;

A very present help is He;

Therefore we will not fear.

Although the pillars of the earth

Shall clean removed be,

The very mountains carried forth,

And cast into the sea;

Although the waters rage and swell,

So that the earth shall shake;

Yea, and the solid mountain roots

Shall with the tempest quake;

There is a river that makes glad

The city of our God;

The tabernacle’s holy place

Of the Most High’s abode.

The Lord is in the midst of her,

Removed she shall not be;

Because the Lord our God himself

Shall help her speedily.

The Lord our strength and refuge is,

When trouble’s hour is near;

A very present help is He;

Therefore we will not fear.
