  1.  God our strength and refuge is;
         He is our help in time of need;
      Therefore we should never fear;
         For the Eternal is with us!
      Tho' the earth and mountains shake;
         Tho' its waters roar and foam;
      God of Jacob, God of Hosts;
         He is our fortress and our strength!

  2.  In the city of our God,
         Bright streams shall deck His high abode;
      God is in the midst of her;
         She shall not ever be removed!
      Tho' the heathen rage with hate;
         Tho' their kingdoms move and shake,
      God will utter His great voice;
         At His command all wars will cease!

  3.  Come, behold the wordrous works;
         What pow'r they show upon the earth!
      He gives peace to all the land;
         He breaks the bow and snaps the spear.
      This is God's command to all;
         Learn that only I am God,
      I alone the heathen rule;
         I, only I, do rule the land!
