God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore will not we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea; Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof. Selah. There is a river, the streams whereof shall make glad the city of God, the holy place of the tabernacles of the most High. God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved: God shall help her, and that right early. The heathen raged, the kingdoms were moved: he uttered his voice, the earth melted. The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah. Come, behold the works of the LORD, what desolations he hath made in the earth. He maketh wars to cease unto the end of the earth; he breaketh the bow, and cutteth the spear in sunder; he burneth the chariot in the fire. Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth. The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah. (Psalm 46)

God is our Refuge and our Strength, Our ever present Aid,
And, therefore, though the earth remove, We will not be afraid;
Though hills amidst the sea be cast, Though foaming waters roar,
Yes, though the mighty billows shake The mountains on the shore.

A river flows whose streams make glad The city of our God,
The holy place wherein the Lord Most High has His abode;
Since God is in the midst of her, Unmoved her walls shall stand,
For God will be her early help, When trouble is at hand.

The nations raged, the kingdoms moved, But when His voice was heard,
The troubled earth was stilled to peace Before His mighty Word.
The Lord of Hosts is on our side, Our safety is secure;
The God of Jacob is for us A refuge strong and sure.

O come, behold what wondrous works Jehovah’s hand has wrought;
Come, see what desolation great He on the earth has brought.
To utmost ends of all the earth He causes war to cease;
The weapons of the strong destroyed, He makes abiding peace.

Be still and know that I am God, O’er all exalted high;
The subject nations of the earth My Name shall magnify.
The Lord of Hosts is on our side, Our safety is secure;
The God of Jacob is for us A refuge strong and sure.
