God the Refuge of His People.
For the choir director. A Psalm of the sons of Korah, set to Alamoth. A Song.
     1     God is our arefuge and strength,
1A very bpresent help cin 2trouble.
     2     Therefore we will anot fear, though bthe earth should change
And though cthe mountains slip into the heart of the 1sea;
     3     Though its awaters roar and foam,
Though the mountains quake at its swelling pride.     1Selah.
     4     There is a ariver whose streams make glad the bcity of God,
The holy cdwelling places of the Most High.
     5     God is ain the midst of her, she will not be moved;
God will bhelp her 1when morning dawns.
     6     The 1nations amade an uproar, the kingdoms tottered;
He 2braised His voice, the earth cmelted.
     7     The Lord of hosts ais with us;
The God of Jacob is bour stronghold.     Selah.
     8     Come, abehold the works of the Lord,
1Who has wrought bdesolations in the earth.
     9     He amakes wars to cease to the end of the earth;
He bbreaks the bow and cuts the spear in two;
He cburns the chariots with fire.
     10     1Cease striving and aknow that I am God;
I will be bexalted among the 2nations, I will be exalted in the earth.
     11     The Lord of hosts is with us;
The God of Jacob is our stronghold.     Selah.
