Dear Friend of Hymnary,

Please, before you close this box, would you today consider making a donation to Hymnary. Did you know that more than two million people came here in the first four months of 2017? These are people who have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site, and they are grateful for the resources they find here.

But, as you can imagine, keeping this site going does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue.

So, if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do. You can make your tax-deductible contribution through the Calvin College donation page, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team, thanks.
Harry Plantinga

Psalm 46 (A Responsorial Setting)

The Lord of Hosts is with us, The God of Jacob is our stronghold

Published in 6 hymnals

Full Text

Refrain:
The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our stronghold.

1 God is our refuge and strength,
a very present help in trouble.

2 Therefore we will not fear though the earth should change,
though the mountains shake in the heart of the sea;
3 though its waters roar and foam,
though the mountains tremble with its tumult. (R)

4 There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God,
the holy habitation of the Most High.
5 God is in the midst of the city, it shall not be moved;
God will help it when the morning dawns.

6 The nations are in an uproar, the kingdoms totter;
He utters His voice, the earth melts. (R)

7 The Lord of hosts is with us;
the God of Jacob is our refuge.

8. Come, behold the works of the Lord;
see what desolations He has brought on the earth.
9 He makes wars cease to the end of the earth;
He breaks the bow, and shatters the spear;
He burns the shields with fire. (R)

10 "Be still, and know that I am God!
I am exalted among the nations,
I am exalted in the earth."

11 The Lord of hosts is with us;
the God of Jacob is our refuge. (R)
