Hymn/Song Information

God is our Refuge and our Strength




God is our Refuge
and our Strength,
Our ever present Aid,
And, therefore,
though the earth remove,
We will not be afraid;
Though hills amidst
the sea be cast,
Though foaming waters roar,
Yes, though the mighty
billows shake
The mountains on the shore.


A river flows
whose streams make glad
The city of our God,
The holy place wherein the Lord
Most High has His abode;
Since God is in the midst of her,
Unmoved her walls shall stand,
For God will be her early help,
When trouble is at hand.


The nations raged,
the kingdoms moved,
But when His voice was heard
The troubled earth
was stilled to peace
Before His mighty Word.
The Lord of Hosts is on our side,
Our safety is secure;
The God of Jacob is for us
A refuge strong and sure.


O come, behold
what wondrous works
Jehovah’s hand has wrought;
Come, see what desolation great
He on the earth has brought.
To utmost ends of all the earth
He causes war to cease;
The weapons of
the strong destroyed,
He makes abiding peace.


Be still and know that I am God,
O’er all exalted high;
The subject nations of the earth
My Name shall magnify.
The Lord of Hosts is on our side,
Our safety is secure;
The God of Jacob is for us
A refuge strong and sure.
