 1  God is our refuge and our strength,
       in straits a present aid;
    Therefore, although the earth remove,
       we will not be afraid:

 2  Though hills amidst the seas be cast;
       Though waters roaring make,
    And troubled be; yea, though the hills,
        by swelling seas do shake.

 3  A river is, whose streams make 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;
       and nothing shall her move:
    The Lord to her an helper will,
       and that right early, prove.
