Psalm 46 (Lord of Hosts)

Shane & Shane
(Adapted for congregational singing)

Verse 1
O come, behold the works of God
The nations at His feet
He breaks the bow and bends the spear
And tells the wars to cease
O, mighty One of Israel
You are on our side
We walk by faith in
God Who burns the chariots with fire

Chorus
Lord of Hosts, You’re with us
With us in the fire
With us as a shelter
With us in the storm
You will lead us
Through the fiercest battle
O, where else would we go
But with the Lord of Hosts?

Verse 2
O, God of Jacob, fierce and great
You lift Your voice to speak.
The earth, it bows and all the mountains
Move into the sea.
O, Lord, You know the hearts of men
And still You let them live.
O, God, Who makes the mountains melt
Come wrestle us and win!

Chorus
Lord of Hosts, You’re with us
With us in the fire
With us as a shelter
With us in the storm
You will lead us
Through the fiercest battle
O, where else would we go
But with the Lord of Hosts?

Verse 3
Our God,  He is the Lord Most High
Our refuge and our strength
A very present help in times of trouble, our defense.
He said, “Be still and know that I am God and I am near,
Exalted in the nations” Therefore we will have no fear!

Chorus
Lord of Hosts, You’re with us
With us in the fire
With us as a shelter
With us in the storm
You will lead us
Through the fiercest battle
O, where else would we go
But with the Lord of Hosts?

Bridge
Though The oceans roar
You are the Lord of all
The One Who calms the wind and waves
And makes my heart be still
Though the earth gives way
The mountains move into the sea
The nations rage
I know my God is in control.

Chorus
Lord of Hosts, You’re with us
With us in the fire
With us as a shelter
With us in the storm
You will lead us
Through the fiercest battle
O, where else would we go
But with the Lord of Hosts?
