    Verse 1
    God is the refuge of His saints,
    When storms of sharp distress invade;
    Ere we can offer our complaints,
    Behold Him present with His aid!

    Verse 2
    Loud may the troubled ocean roar;
    In sacred peace our souls abide;
    While every nation, every shore,
    Trembles, and dreads the swelling tide.

    Verse 3
    That sacred stream, Thy vital word,
    Thus all our raging fear controls;
    Sweet peace Thy promises afford;
    And give new strength to fainting souls.
