Psalm 46

EIN FESTE BERG

Lyrics:

Psalm 46.1  God is our refuge and our strength,
a present help in our distress.
2 We will not therefore be afraid
tho’ all the earth should be removed,
tho’ mountains great be hurled
into the ocean’s depths,
3 Tho’seas may roar and foam
and billows shake the shore,
tho’ mountains tremble at their power.

4 A river brings refreshing streams
to cheer the city of our God,
the Most High’s holy dwelling place.
5 God is in her; she won’t be moved;
at dawn will God help her.
6 The heathen rage; realms quake;
He lifts His voice; earth melts.
7 The LORD of hosts with us!
Our fortress strong is Jacob’s God.

8 O come, see what the LORD has done:
He desolations brought on earth;
9 On earth He puts an end to wars,
breaks bow and spear, and chariots burns.
10 Be still! Know I am God.
Exalted o’er all men,
exalted o’er all earth.
11 The LORD of hosts with us!
Our fortress strong is Jacob’s God.
