God Is Our Refuge

God is our refuge and strength,
 in a time of trouble.
He's there to pick me up...
 when I fall and stumble.

I will not fear, though the 
whole earth be shaken.
And the mountains be thrown into 
the ocean's deep basin.

Though the waters roar, and the trees 
shake with fear;
I am never alone....  
 for God is always near.. 

There is a river, whose streams
 bring forth gladness.
God is in it's midst and
 brings true happiness.

Let the heathen rage... 
and the whole earth melt too.
The Lord of hosts is with us, 
and shall protect YOU!

Behold his works... and see
 what he has made.
He has caused  wars to cease...  
& destroyed weapons displayed.

Be still...  He is God and is exalted 
to glory up on high.
He is our protector. 
 He is El-Shadaii!

The Lord of hosts is with us...
 all of heaven does proclam.
The awesome power and glory 
there is...  in HIS majestic name!
