Oceans rise, the coastland trembles;
mountains melt and dry earth crumbles.
All the world with longing groans.
Love abide; this gracious promise
is our help, our hope and solace.
God's strong work is solid ground.
Nations rage, the empire falters;
seeking refuge, exiles wander.
Walls and weapons rise from fear.
Through this wilderness a river
flows to heal and bless us ever.
God the crucified dwells here.
Come and see; God's mercy gathers
all that sin and grief have shattered.
Life from fields of death is raised.
Peace, be still; let prideful thunder
yield to songs of joy and wonder.
]God and Go alone be praise.
