God Is Our Fortress

To the choirmaster. Of a  the Sons of Korah. According to b  Alamoth.
Probably a musical or liturgical term
A Song.

1 God is our d  refuge and strength,
a very e  present
Or well proved
help in g  trouble.
2Therefore we will not fear h  though the earth gives way,
though the mountains be moved into i  the heart of the sea,
3though j  its waters roar and foam,
though the mountains tremble at its swelling.  Selah
4 There is k  a river whose streams make glad l  the city of God,
the holy m  habitation of the Most High.
5 n  God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved;
God will help her when morning dawns.
6 o  The nations rage, the kingdoms totter;
he p  utters his voice, the earth q  melts.
7 r  The  Lord of hosts is with us;
the God of Jacob is our fortress.  Selah
8 s  Come, behold the works of the  Lord,
how he has brought desolations on the earth.
9 t  He makes wars cease to the end of the earth;
he u  breaks the bow and shatters the spear;
v  he burns the chariots with fire.
10 w  “Be still, and know that I am God.
x  I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth!”
11 y  The  Lord of hosts is with us;
the God of Jacob is our fortress.  Selah
