1  God is our strength and refuge sure;
An ever-present help is he
When troubled days we must endure.
2  Therefore from fear our hearts are free,
Though earthquakes move the world,
And hills ’midst seas be hurled,
3  Though waters of the deep
In turmoil roar and leap—
Though breakers shake the mountains steep.

4  A river flows whose waters clear
Make glad the city of our God—
The consecrated city where
The LORD Most High has his abode.
5  God dwells within her wall,
And so she will not fall;
No trouble can her move
For God her help will prove
When morning light dawns from above.

6  The kingdoms shake, the nations fret;
He lifts his voice, earth melts away.
7  The LORD of hosts is with us yet;
The God of Jacob is our stay.
8  Come then, let all draw near
And view with holy fear
The works, surpassing thought,
The LORD alone has wrought.
What ruin he on earth has brought!

9  To earth’s remotest bounds he turns
Wars into peace: he snaps the spear;
He breaks the bow; the shield he burns.
10  Know I am God; be still and fear.
Among the nations I
Will be exalted high;
On earth I will hold sway.
11  “The LORD’s with us,” we say.
The God of Jacob is our stay.
