God Our Refuge
God is our refuge and strength,
Very present help in trouble;
Persevering at any length,
Pulling us out of the rubble.
We fear not though the earth gives way,
Nor mountains move into the sea;
Waters roar and foam as waves stray,
Trembling mountains at the decree.
A river whose streams make God glad,
Holy dwellings of the Most High;
He is in the midst as she had,
Helping her as the dawn does cry.
The nations rage as they totter,
When hearing His voice, the earth thaws;
His command that He does utter,
In declaring those who have flaws.
The Lord of Hosts will be with us,
The God of Jacob a fortress;
Our refuge to shield as thus,
From the anguish when in distress.
Come behold the works of the Lord,
What desolations on the earth;
Because the heathens have ignored,
For the glory of its true worth.
He will make all the wars to cease,
Breaks the bow and shatters the spear;
Chariots burn for making peace,
As everyone bows to revere.
Be still and know that He is God,
Who will be exalted on the earth;
That all nations honor and laud,
As He gives this place a new birth.
