Down by the Sea Psalm 46

God is our strength and shield, 

a very present help when trouble comes.

Therefore we will not fear 

even though earth may change

or when the mountains shake down by the sea.


There is a river whose 

streams make God’s city glad, where the Lord dwells.

Nations roar, kingdoms fall. 

God reigns above them all.

Under whose wings we’re blest, in whom we rest.


Come and behold God’s works 

manifest on the earth  where struggles cease.

Be still and know the Lord 

in sacrament and word

through which the call is heard. Know and have peace.
