Hymnary Friends,

As our fall/winter fund drive winds down, please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. We're behind where we have been in past years with this drive, and we are hoping to catch up a little between now and January 1, 2019!

Please know that we want to keep Hymnary (the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet) going for many years to come. Your donations help us do that. Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

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.
