God will our strength and refuge proveTune: WALTHAM (Calkin)
Published in 8 hymnals
1 God will our strength and refuge prove,
In all distress a present aid,
And, though the trembling earth remove,
We will not fear nor be dismayed.
2 Our trust in god shall still abide
tho' hills be shaken from their seat,
And though the ocean's swelling tide
Against the trembling mountains beat.
3 A river flows, whose living streams
Make glad the city of our God,
The holy place where glory beams
Where God Most High has His abode.
4 God has in her His dwelling made,
And she shall nevermore be moved;
Her God shall early give her aide,
Her constant helper He has proved.
5 The kings and nations raged in pride;
He spake, the earth did melt away;
The Lord of Hosts is on her side,
Our fathers' God, our strength and stay.
6 Come, see the works of God displayed,
The wonders of His mighty hand,
What desolations He has made,
What ruin spread through all the land.
7 Through all the peopled earth He makes
The dreadful scourge of war to cease,
The implements of battle breaks,
And makes the nations dwell in peace.
8 Be still, ye nations, bow in fear,
And know that I alone am God;
To us the Lord of Hosts is near,
Our fathers' God is our abode.
