Lyrics

All they who put their trust in God
Can never be removed;
They stand secure like Zion’s mount,
By many ages proved.

Refrain

Like the mount of God,
Like the mount of God;
They stand secure like Zion’s mount,
By many ages proved.
They can never be removed, removed;
They stand secure like Zion’s mount,
They can never be removed.

As round about Jerusalem
The rugged mountains lie,
So round about His holy saints
Our God is ever nigh.

Refrain

Tho’ fierce the storm in fury beat
And awful thunders roar,
The children of the mighty God
Are safe forevermore.

Refrain

Thus overshadowed by His love,
Where harm can ne’er betide,
Within this refuge safe and sure
I ever would abide.
