Representative Text

1 Dios es nuestro amparo, nuestra fortaleza,
nuestro pronto auxilio en la tribulación;
aunque se trasladen los montes a la mar,
aunque la tierra tiemble, tenemos que confiar;
aunque la tierra tiemble, tenemos que confiar.

Estribillo:
Cielos y tierra pasarán,
mas tu palabra no pasaraá.
Cielos y tierra pasarán,
mas tu palabra no pasaraá.
¡No, no, no pasará;
no, no, no pasará!

2 Hay un río limpio de aguas cristalinas
en la ciudad santa, morada del Señor.
Dios habita en ella, y nunca caerá;
al clarear la mañana su ayuda brindará;
al clarear la mañana su ayuda brindará. [Estribillo]

3 Bramaron las naciones, reinos titubearon;
él dio la palabra; la tierra derritió.
Con nosotros siempre el Señor está;
él es nuestro refugio, tenemos que confiar;
él es nuestro refugio, tenemos que confiar. [Estribillo]

4 Contemplad sus obras, el asolamiento;
detendrá las guerras, las armas quebrará.
Será exaltado; y todos lo sabrán;
que él es nuestro refugio, tenemos que confiar;
que él es nuestro refugio, tenemos que confiar. [Estribillo]

1 God will be our refuge, strength, and mighty fortress,
Ever-present help in our times of deep distress.
Though the mountains tremble and crumble into dust,
Though earth and seas are shaken, in God we put our trust.
Though earth and seas are shaken, in God we put our trust.

Refrain:
Heaven and earth may pass away,
Your word will never pass away.
Heaven and earth may pass away,
Your word will never pass away.
No, no, never pass away;
No, no, never pass away!

2 Streams of living water sparkle bright as crystal,
Making glad the city, the dwelling of the Lord.
God is its foundation, and so it never shakes.
God's strong right arm defends it as each new morning breaks.
God's strong right arm defends it as each new morning breaks. [Refrain]

3 Though nations rage and bellow, kings and empires totter,
God speaks but a word and its thunder melts the earth.
Ever-present with us, through depth and height and length,
The Lord remains our refuge, our stronghold, and our strength.
The Lord remains our refuge, our stronghold, and our strength. [Refrain]

4 See God's works of power, fearsome deeds before us,
Causing wars to cease, breaking bows and shatt'ring spears.
God will be exalted, whose ways are true and just:
For God is still our refuge, in whom we put our trust.
For God is still our refuge, in whom we put our trust. [Refrain]
