GOD is our refuge, tried and proved,
Amid a stormy world;
We will not fear though earth be moved,
And hills in ocean hurled.

The waves may roar, the mountains shake,
Our comforts shall not cease;
The Lord his saints will not forsake;
The Lord will give us peace.

A gentle stream of hope and love,
To us shall ever flow;
It issues from his throne above;
It cheers his church below.

When earth and hell against us came,
He spake and quelled their powers:
The Lord of hosts is still the same;
The God of grace is ours.
