1 God is our refuge and our strength,
our ever present aid,
and therefore, though the earth be moved,
we will not be afraid;
2 though hills into the sea be cast,
though foaming waters roar,
yea, though all the mighty billows shake
the mountains on the shore.
3 A river flows whose streams make glad
the city of our God,
the holy place wherein the Lord
most high has his abode.
4 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.
5 Be still and know that this is God;
among the heathen he
will be exalted, and on earth
shall reign eternally.
