“God is our refuge and strength [mighty and impenetrable], A very present and well-proved help in trouble.  Therefore we will not fear, though the earth should change And though the mountains be shaken and slip into the heart of the seas, Though its waters roar and foam, Though its waters roar and foam, Though the mountains tremble at its roaring”. Psalm 46:1-3 AMP V
