The waters of a river

Psalm 45

  • Refrain:
    The waters of a river give joy to God's city,
    the holy place where the Most High dwells.
    The waters of a river give joy to God's city,
    the holy place where the Most High dwells.
  1. God is for us, a refuge and strength,
    a helper close at hand.
    So we shall not fear,
    thought the earth shouls rock,
    the mountains fall into the sea.
  2. God is with us and always will be,
    from the dawning of each day.
    So we shall not fear,
    thought the earth shouls rock,
    the mountains fall into the sea.
  3. God is in us, our stronghold, our hope,
    How wonderful, the Lord!
    So we shall not fear,
    thought the earth shouls rock,
    the mountains fall into the sea.
