Hymn/Song Information

The Lord is our defense and aid the strength where




The Lord is our defense and aid,
the strength whereby we stand;
When we with woe are much dismayed
he is our help at hand.


Though earth do move, we will not fear,
though mountains high and steep
Be thrust and hurl-ed here and there
within the sea so deep:


No, though the sea do rage so sore,
that all the banks it spills,
And though it overflow the shore,
and beat down mighty hills:


For one fair flood doth send abroad
his pleasant streams apace,
To glad the city of our God,
and wash his holy place.


In midst of her the Lord doth dwell,
she never can decay,
All things against her that rebel
the Lord will surely slay.


The heathen folk and kingdoms fear,
the people make a noise,
The earth doth melt and disappear,
when God puts forth his voice.


The Lord of hosts doth take our part,
to us he hath an eye:
Our hope of health with all our heart
on Jacob's God doth lie.


Come here, and see with mind and thought
the working of our God,
What wonders he himself hath wrought
in all the world abroad:


By him all wars are hushed and gone,
though countries did conspire;
Their bows and spears he brake each one,
their chariots burnt with fire.


Be still therefore, and know that I
am God, and therefore will
Among the heathen people be
highly exalted still.


The Lord of hosts doth us defend,
he is our strength and tow'r;
On Jacob's God we do depend,
and on his mighty pow'r.
