Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

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

Representative Text

1 God is our refuge and our strength,
A very present help indeed;
He in the time of trouble sends
His grace to meet our ev'ry need.

God is our refuge.
God is our refuge.
With mighty arm revealed,
He is our help and shield.
God is our refuge and our strength.

2 Safe in His tender loving care,
We have no fear of what shall be,
E'en tho' the earth should be removed
And mountains cast into the sea. [Refrain]

3 Sure, in the city of our King
Secure we rest from all alarm;
For God is in the midst of her,
To shield His people from all harm. [Refrain]

4 While heathen rage and kingdoms move,
And desolation sweeps the land;
The Lord of hosts is with us still,
To save us by His mighty hand. [Refrain]

5 Soon will the day of vict'ry come,
When wars shall cease from all the earth;
Soon shall eternal peace be ours,
And new Creation have her birth. [Refrain]
