1 All they who put their trust in God
Can never be removed,
They stand secure like Zion's mount,
By many ages proved.

Like the mount, like the mount,
the holy mount of God,
like the holy mount of God,
the holy mount of God.
They stand secure like Zion's mount, many ages proved.
They can never be removed,
Can never be removed,
Can never be removed, can never be removed;
They stand secure like Zion's mount,
They can never be removed.

2 As round about Jerusalem
The rugged mountains lie,
So round about his holy saints
Our God is ever nigh. [Chorus]

3 Tho' fierce the storm in fury beat,
And awful thunders roar,
The children of the mighty God
Are safe for evermore. [Chorus]

4 Thus overshadowed by his love,
Where harm can ne'er betide,
Within this refuge safe and sure
I ever would abide. [Chorus]
