God is our refuge and strength,
a help always near
in times of great trouble.
That’s why we won’t be afraid
when the world falls apart,
when the mountains crumble into the center of the sea,
when its waters roar and rage,
when the mountains shake
because of its surging waves. Selah
There is a river whose streams
gladden God’s city,
the holiest dwelling of the Most High.
God is in that city. It will never crumble.
God will help it when morning dawns.
Nations roar; kingdoms crumble.
God utters his voice; the earth melts.
The Lord of heavenly forces is with us!
The God of Jacob is our place of safety. Selah
Psalm 46:1-7, Common English Bible
