In times of trouble and of strife,
We have a refuge in our God.
In every season of our life,
He guides us with His staff and rod.
The Lord commands us to be still
Amid the strife and the commotion
To hear His voice and do His will,
Though mountains fall into the ocean.
The Word of God is powerful,
A sharp discerner of intentions,
A sword dividing heart and soul,
A light reproving false inventions.
With stillness, Lord, we seek Your face
Above the strife and confrontation.
We draw near to Your throne of grace
And find Your mercy's consolation.
