1. God is our refuge and our strength,
In trouble ever near;
Though earth and mountain be removed
My spirit shall not fear.
2. Yea, though the hills be carried down
And cast into the sea,
Though waters roar and mountains shake
Our refuge shalt Thou be.
3. The heathen raged, the kingdoms moved,
And nations were in fear;
Yet Jacob’s God is with us now;
The Lord of Hosts is near.
4. The Lord of Hosts is with us still;
The God of Jacob’s arm,
When desolation wraps the earth,
Shall keep us from all harm.
5. He maketh wars to cease, He breaks
The bow and cuts the spear:
He burns the chariots in the fire,
Destroying hate and fear.
6. Be still, and know that I am God;
I will exalted be,
The God of Jacob is our strength;
The Lord of Hosts is He.
