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.
Harry Plantinga

102. God Is Our Refuge and Our Strength

1 God is our refuge and our strength,
our ever present aid,
and therefore, though the earth be moved,
we will not be afraid;

2 though hills into the sea be cast,
though foaming waters roar,
yea, though all the mighty billows shake
the mountains on the shore.

3 A river flows whose streams make glad
the city of our God,
the holy place wherein the Lord
most high has his abode.

4 Since God is in the midst of her,
unmoved her walls shall stand;
for God will be her early help
when trouble is at hand.

5 Be still and know that this is God;
among the heathen he
will be exalted, and on earth
shall reign eternally.
