God Is Our Refuge and Our Strength

Text:  Psalm 46, Scottish Psalter  1650
Music:  Este's Psalter, 1592  1592
Tune:  Winchester Old  86.86
OHT Incipit:  

God is our Refuge and our Strength,
In straits a present Aid,
Therefore, although the earth remove,
We will not be afraid;

Though hills amidst the seas be cast,
Though waters roaring make,
And troubled be be; yea though the hills
By swelling seas do shake.

A river is, whose streams make glad
The City of our God,
The holy place, wherein the Lord
Most High has His abode;

God in the midst of her doth dwell,
And nothing shall her move;
The Lord to her a helper will,
And that right early, prove.
