Be Still

norway-1226822_1920

Though tears will flood,
As the whole earth shakes,
And mountains fall into the sea,
God is my Refuge and Strength.

Be still, my soul,
Be still, and know,

I AM – The LORD,
Is my Refuge and Strength,
My Help in trouble’s way,
Trust the LORD of hosts,
Who breaks fears and woes,
And turns sorrows to praise.

Though emotions rage,
He utters His voice,
Great struggles and battles cease,
God is my Refuge and Strength.

You reign on the throne,
Sovereign over all,
Whom shall I fear?

Behind the lines

Psalm 46, which inspired Martin Luther to write A Mighty Fortress Is Our God.

God is our refuge and strength,
a very present help in trouble.
(Psalm 46:1 ESV)

“Be still, and know that I am God.
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth!”
(Psalm 46:10 ESV)
