President Obama Reads Poem at the September 11th Commemoration

THE PRESIDENT:

God is our refuge and strength,

a very present help in trouble.

Therefore, we will not fear,

even though the earth be removed,

and though the mountains be carried

into the midst of the sea.

2011_9-11_Commemorative_MJ_NFP_Cartoonist

Though its waters roar and be troubled,

though the mountains shake

with its swelling,

there's a river

whose streams shall make glad

the City of God,

the holy place of the Tabernacle

of the Most High.

God is in the midst of her.

She shall not be moved.

God shall help her

just at the break of dawn.

The nations raged,

the kingdoms were moved.

He uttered his voice.

The earth melted.

The Lord of Hosts is with us.

The God of Jacob is our refuge.

Come behold the works of the Lord

who has made desolations in the Earth.

He makes wars cease

to the ends of the Earth.

He breaks the bough

and cuts the spear in two.

He burns the chariot in fire.

Be still and know that I am God.

I will be exalted among the nations.

I will be exalted in the Earths.

The Lord of Hosts is with us.

The God of Jacob is our refuge.
