Tag Archives: God is our refuge

A Congregational Responsive Reading of Psalm 46 – led by two voices

Reader 1:     God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.

Reader 2:     God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.

All:              “Be still, and know that I am God!”

Reader 1:    Because God is our refuge and strength we will not fear, though the earth should change.

Reader 2:     Though the mountains shake in the heart of the sea;

Reader 1:     Though its waters roar and foam,

Reader 2:     Though the mountains tremble with it tumult.

All:              God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.

Reader 1:     There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, the holy habitation of the Most High.

Reader 2:     God is in the midst of the city; it shall not be moved;

Reader 1:     God will help it when the morning dawns,

Reader 2:     The nations are in an uproar, the kingdoms totter; he utters his voice and the earth melts.

All:              The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge!

Reader 1:     Come, behold the works of the Lord; see what he has done.

Reader 2:     He makes wars cease to the end of the earth; he breaks the bow, and shatters the spear; and burns the shields with fire. 

All:              “Be still, and know that I am God!”

Reader 1:     “I am exalted among the nations.”

Reader 2:     “I am exalted in the earth.”

All:             The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge!
