Behold him present with his aid.
Down to the deep, and buried there, Convulsions shake the solid world,
Our faith shall never yield to fear. 3 Loud may the troubled ocean roar;
In sacred peace our souls abide; While every nation, every shore,
Trembles, and dreads the swelling tide. 4 There is a stream whose gentle flow
Supplies the city of our God,
And watering our divine abode.
Our grief allays, our fear controls; Sweet peace thy promises afford,
And give new strength to fainting souls. 6 Zion enjoys her Monarch's love,
Secure against a threatening hour; Nor can her firm foundation move, Built on his truth, and armed with
Thou waterest all the worlds above;
3 Close by its banks, in order fair,
No longer in thy sins lie down:
Thy beauty and thy strength put on. 2 Shake off the dust that blinds thy sight,
And hides the promise from thine eyes; Arise, and struggle into light; : The great Deliverer calls, “ Arise !" 3 Shake off the bands of sad despair;

Showing that the Lord is near!
He who listens when we cry, Let him hear the loud hosanna
Rising to his throne on high.

you. Scenes of heartfelt tribulation
Shall no more perplex your ways; You shall name your walls “Salvation,”
And your gates shall all be “ Praise.” 2 There, like streams that feed the garden,
Pleasures without end shall flow, For the Lord, your faith rewarding,
All his bounty shall bestow. Still in undisturbed possession,
Peace and righteousness shall reign; Never shall you feel oppression,
Hear the voice of war again. 3 Ye, no more your suns descending,
Waning moons no more shall see; But, your griefs forever ending,
Find eternal noon in me:
God shall rise, and, shining o'er you,
Change to day the gloom of night;
God your everlasting light.

more; Bright o'er thy hills dawns the day-star of
gladness; Arise, for the night of thy sorrow is o'er. 2 Strong were thy foes; but the arm that sub

far; They fled like the chaff from the scourge that
pursued them; Vain were their steeds and their chariots

thee Extolled with the harp and the timbrel
should be: Shout, for the foe is destroyed that enslaved
thee; The oppressor is vanquished, and Zion is free!
