Tune: HIGHER GROUND

Words: David P. Regier

View lyrics
God is our refuge and our strength;
Our present help in doubt and pain.
Our hearts will never feel dismay,
Though earth beneath our feet give way.
Though mountains fall into the sea,
And waters fierce and stormy be;
Though earth may shake with swelling tide,
The Lord our God is at our side.

There is a river flowing grand
Whose streams make glad God's holy land.
The dwelling of our God Most High
Is steadfast in His dawning light.
Though nations rage and kingdoms fall,
The earth shall melt before His call;
The Lord of hosts with us shall dwell,
Our fortress, God of Israel.

Come see the wonders of the Lord,
Who sends destruction by His word.
The bow, the spear, the chariot cease,
As He brings everlasting peace.
"Be still and know that I am God;
The nations tremble in their awe."
The Lord of hosts with us shall dwell,
Our refuge, God of Israel.
