Psalm words

1    God is our refuge and our strength,
       in straits a present aid;
2    Therefore, although the earth remove,
       we will not be afraid:
     Though hills amidst the seas be cast;
3      Though waters roaring make,
     And troubled be; yea, though the hills,
       by swelling seas do shake.

4    A river is, whose streams do glad
       the city of our God;
     The holy place, wherein the Lord
       most high hath his abode.
5    God in the midst of her doth dwell;
       nothing shall her remove:
     The Lord to her an helper will,
       and that right early, prove.

7    The Lord of hosts upon our side
       doth constantly remain:
     The God of Jacob's our refuge,
       us safely to maintain.
10   Be still, and know that I am God;
       among the heathen I
     Will be exalted; I on earth
       will be exalted high.

11   Our God, who is the Lord of hosts,
       is still upon our side;
     The God of Jacob our refuge
       for ever will abide.
