Psalm 46

Full Text

1 God is our Refuge and our Strength,
Our ever-present aid,
And, therefore, though the earth remove,
We will not be afraid;

2 Though hills amidst the seas be cast,
Though foaming waters roar,
Yea, though 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.
