Psalm 46 God Is Our Refuge and Our Strength

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 amid the seas be cast,
    Though foaming waters roar,
    Yea, though the mighty billows shake
    The mountains on the shore.

3.  Where God abides a river flows;
    That city will rejoice.
    But nations fear and kingdoms shake
    Before God's thundering voice.

4.  Since God is in the midst of it,
    The city walls shall stand,
    Secure and safe with God's sure help,
    When trouble is at hand.
