Psalm 46:1-5

God is our refuge and strength,
 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.
Psalm 46:1-5

My eye grows dim through sorrow.
 Every day I call on you, O LORD;

 Are your wonders known in the darkness?
 But I, O LORD, cry out to you;
 in the morning my prayer comes before you.
- Excerpts from Psalm 88, a Psalm of Lament.
