Elizabeth Wordsworth, 1903
God is our stronghold and our stay,|
Our hope in tribulation;
What though the mountains rock and sway
To earth's long-hid foundation?
What though the ocean roar,
Fast gaining on the shore
The hurtling storm rage loud
Beneath the thunder cloud?
Our hearts are all untroubled.
2. The might of water sinks to rest;
3. In vain the heathen shout for war,|
In vain our foes assemble;
The voice of God is heard from far,
And earth itself shall tremble.
He breaks the spear and bow,
He lays the warrior low,
The chariot burns with flame;
Our trust is in his Name,
And Jacob's God our refuge!
4. Be still, the Lord is God alone,
