a very present help in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear,
though the earth should change,
though the mountains shake in the heart of the sea;
though its waters roar and foam,
though the mountains tremble with its tumult.
There is a river whose streams
make glad the city of God,
the holy habitation of the Most High.
God is in the midst of the city;
it shall not be moved;
God will help it when the morning dawns.
We read this Psalm in church last Sunday looks back to this week of storm and trials. yet it also looks forward to God's promise of help, security, and presence in the midst of adversity, in the midst of the city.
