God is our hope and strength,
A very present help in trouble;
Therefore we will not fear,
Tho' the earth tremble;
Tho' the Mountains Shake;
And the Waters Rage and Swell.
For God is in the midst of Us,
therefore shall we not be moved;
God is our hope and refuge;
Therefore shall we not be moved,
God is our hope.
O! Behold the works of the Lord.
He maketh Wars to cease in all the world;
He is exalted in the earth among the heathen;
He is exalted in the Earth.
