Lenten meditation for March 20, 2021
                          
1God is our refuge and strength, *
    a very present help in trouble. 
2Therefore we will not fear, though the earth be moved, *
    and though the mountains be toppled into the
                             depths of the sea; 
3Though its waters rage and foam, *
    and though the mountains tremble at its tumult. 

4The LORD of hosts is with us; *
    the God of Jacob is our stronghold. 

5There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, *
    the holy habitation of the Most High. 
6God is in the midst of her;
she shall not be overthrown; *
    God shall help her at the break of day. 
7The nations make much ado, and the kingdoms are shaken; *
    God has spoken, and the earth shall melt away. 

8The LORD of hosts is with us; *
    the God of Jacob is our stronghold. 

9Come now and look upon the works of the LORD, *
    what awesome things he has done on earth. 
10It is he who makes war to cease in all the world; *
    he breaks the bow, and shatters the spear,
    and burns the shields with fire.
1"Be still, then, and know that I am God; *
    I will be exalted among the nations;
    I will be exalted in the earth." 

12The LORD of hosts is with us; *
    the God of Jacob is our stronghold. 

Psalm 46, page 649, Book of Common Prayer
