God the Refuge of His People.

For the choir director. A Psalm of the sons of Korah, set to Alamoth. A Song.

1 God is our refuge and strength,  A very present help in trouble.
2 Therefore we will not fear, though the earth should change  And though the mountains slip into the heart of the sea;
3 Though its waters roar and foam,  Though the mountains quake at its swelling pride.

4 There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God,  The holy dwelling places of the Most High.
5 God is in the midst of her, she will not be moved;  God will help her when morning dawns.
6 The nations made an uproar, the kingdoms tottered;  He raised His voice, the earth melted.
7 The LORD of hosts is with us;  The God of Jacob is our stronghold.

8 Come, behold the works of the LORD,  Who has wrought desolations in the earth.
9 He makes wars to cease to the end of the earth;  He breaks the bow and cuts the spear in two;  He burns the chariots with fire.
10 “Cease striving and know that I am God;  I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.”
11 The LORD of hosts is with us;  The God of Jacob is our stronghold.
