GOD IS THE REFUGE OF THE DISTRESSED




God is our refuge in distress,
a present help when dangers press;
In him undaunted we'll confide:
Though earth were from her center tossed,
and mountains in the ocean lost,
Torn piece-meal by the roaring tide.


A gentler stream with gladness still
the city of our Lord shall fill,
The royal seat of God most high:
God dwells in Zion, whose fair tow'rs
shall mock th' assaults of earthly pow'rs,
While his almighty aid is nigh.


In tumults when the heathen raged,
and kingdoms war against us waged,
He thundered, and dispersed their pow'rs:
The Lord of hosts conducts our arms,
our tow'r of refuge in alarms,
Our fathers' guardian God and ours.


Come see the wonders he hath wrought,
on earth what desolation brought;
How he has calmed the jarring world:
He broke the warlike spear and bow;
with them the thund'ring chariots too
Into devouring flames were hurled.


Submit to God's almighty sway,
for him the heathen shall obey,
And earth her sov'reign Lord confess:
The God of hosts conducts our arms,
our tow'r of refuge in alarms,
As to our fathers in distress.


---Alternative verses---


God is our refuge in distress,
a present help when dangers press;
In him undaunted we'll confide:
Though earth were from her center tossed,
and mountains in the ocean lost,
Hurled dowward by the roaring tide.


There is a stream whose living flood
makes glad the city of our God,
The seat of majesty on high:
God dwells in Zion, whose fair tow'rs
shall mock th' assaults of earthly pow'rs,
While his almighty aid is nigh.


In tumults when the nations raged,
and kingdoms war against us waged,
He thundered, and dispersed their pow'rs:
The Lord of hosts conducts our arms,
our tow'r of refuge in alarms,
Our fathers' guardian God and ours.
