Psalm 46

Words: The Scottish Psalter

C. M.

To the chief Musician, for the sons of Korah,
A Song upon Alomoth.
   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.
   6  The heathen raged tumultuously,
         the kingdoms moved were:
      The Lord God uttered his voice,
         the earth did melt for fear.
   7  The Lord of hosts upon our side
         doth constantly remain:
      The God of Jacob's our refuge,
         us safely to maintain.
   8  Come, and behold what wondrous works
         have by the Lord been wrought;
      Come, see what desolations
         he on the earth hath brought.
   9  Unto the ends of all the earth
         wars into peace he turns:
      The bow he breaks, the spear he cuts,
         in fire the chariot burns.
  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.
