Psalms 46:1-6

1 God is our shelter and strength, always ready to help in times of trouble.
2 So we will not be afraid, even if the earth is shaken and mountains fall into the ocean depths;
3 even if the seas roar and rage, and the hills are shaken by the violence.
4 There is a river that brings joy to the city of God, to the sacred house of the Most High.
5 God is in that city, and it will never be destroyed; at early dawn he will come to its aid.
6 Nations are terrified, kingdoms are shaken; God thunders, and the earth dissolves.
