God is our refuge and strength,
An ever present help in trouble,
Therefore we will not fear breath;
Though earth gives way and rumble
And the mountains fall and bolt
Into the heart of the sea and tumble.

Though water roam and so foam,
Mountains quake with great surge;
There is a river whose streams hum
To make glad God’s city and age.
Holy a place and the most high home;
God is within and she wouldn’t plunge.

He lifts His voice, earth melts away.
Nations are in uproar, kingdoms fall.
God will help her at break of day,
The Lord Almighty is with us all;
God of Jacob is our fortress and way,
Come and see His works stand tall.

The desolations He has brought to earth;
He makes wars cease to the ends of it.
He breaks the bow and spears He melts;
The shields He burns with His heat.

“Be still, and know that I AM THE GOD,
I will be exalted among the nations;
I will be exalted in the earth as GOD.”
The Lord Almighty is with us, all nations,
Our fortress is Jacob’s own GOD.

    1. Only read bits of Milton’s translation from other writer’s works. I haven’t had the opportunity to read them extensively. Thanks for the link
