A Psalm for (a stormy) Sunday

A reblog/revamp today based on Psalm 46. I previously published it in a slightly different form, on the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks 2 years ago. We're using it in Belfast South Methodist this morning as part of worship.







God is our strength and a safe place to hide,
In time of trouble he’s always there to help.
So we will not fear, even if the earth should shake
And mountains be reduced to rubble,
though the seas rage and roar
and cities be swept away in the surge.
Pause

The River of Life sustains the city of God,
the holy habitation of the Most High.
God is within her walls, so she will stand;
God will ride to her rescue with the rising sun.
Nations rant and rave, kings and kingdoms fall; 
The Almighty I AM speaks, and the whole earth dissolves .
The Almighty I AM is always with us;
The God of promise is our protector.
Pause

Come and see what the Almighty I AM can do, 
Sweeping away what we thought to be indestructible.
He will bring war to an end
From one end of the world to another;
Putting weapons beyond use eternally
And disarming hearts and minds.

Stop. Be still. Know that the Almighty I AM is God;
I will be exalted among all nations, 
I will be exalted over all the earth.
The Almighty I AM is always with us;
The God of promise is our protector. 
Psalms 46:1-11

Shalom
