Tuesday in the Fourth Week of Lent (Part II)

God is our hope and strength *
a very present help in trouble.
Therefore will we not fear, though the earth be moved *
and though the hills be carried into the midst of the sea.
Though the waters thereof rage and swell *
and though the mountains shake at the tempest of the same.
The rivers of the flood thereof shall make glad the city of God *
the holy place of the tabernacle of the most Highest.
God is in the midst of her, therefore shall she not be removed *
God shall help her, and that right early.
The heathen make much ado, and the kingdoms are moved *
but God hath shewed his voice, and the earth shall melt away.
The Lord of hosts is with us *
the God of Jacob is our refuge.
O come hither, and behold the works of the Lord *
what destruction he hath brought upon the earth.

He maketh wars to cease in all the world *
he breaketh the bow, and knappeth the spear in sunder, and burneth the chariots in the fire.
Be still then, and know that I am God *
I will be exalted among the heathen, and I will be exalted in the earth.
The Lord of hosts is with us *
the God of Jacob is our refuge.

–Psalm 46 (Coverdale Translation)
