PXLVI. To the chief Musician for the Sons of Korah, A Song upon Alamoth

1 God is our refuge, strength and shield,
In troubles very near,
2 Therefore we will not be afraid,
Tho' th' earth removed were:
Tho' moutnains move to midst of seas,
3 Tho' waters roaring make,
And troubled be, tho' at their waves
The mountains trembling shake.

4 There is a river, streams whereof
Make glad th' city of God:
The holy place where the most high
Doth settle his abode.
5 God is within the midst of her,
Be moved shall not she:
When early morning doth appear,
God shall her helper be.

6 The nations made tumultuous noise,
The kingdoms moved were:
He did give forth his thund'ring voice,
The earth did melt with fear.
7 The God of armies is with us,
The everlasting Jah:
The God of Jacob is for us
A refuge high. Selah.

8 O come ye forth, behold the works
The which Jehovah wrought:
the fearful desolations
Which on the earth he brought.
9 Unto the utmost ends of th' earth
Wars into peace he turns;
the spear he cuts, the bow he breaks,
In fire the chariot burns.

10 Be still and know that i am God;
Exalted be will I
Among the heathen, through the earth
I'll be exalted high.
11 The God of armies is with us,
The everlasting Jay:
The God of Jacob is for us
A refuge hig. Selah.
