WILLIAM HENRY HAVERGAL, 1793-1870
1 God is our sure defence, our aid
In time of tribulation;
Our heart shall never be dismayed,
Though fail the earth's foundation,
O'er hills though foaming floods ascend,
Though billows roar, and ocean rend
The mountain-peaks asunder.
2 A river by the holy shrine,
A pure and peaceful river,
Makes glad the seat of power divine:
She stands unmoved for ever;
For God is in the midst of her,
A help, a stay, a comforter;
He comes at break of morning.
3 In Jacob's God our strength is found,
When heathen hosts assemble;
He speaks in thunder; at the sound
Earth melts and nations tremble:
The Lord of hosts a refuge stands.
And 1o! the wonders of his hands,
The wrath, the desolation!
4 He lulls the war, he burns the car,
The bow and spear he breaketh;
Be still, he cries, for I arise;
The Lord, the Lord awaketh,
O'er all the earth a God most high:
The Lord of hosts, our help, is nigh,
Our strength, the God of Jacob.
