Cantiones Sacræ, 1591, nos, 35 & 36.
Lyrics: Psalm 46 v.1-7

Deus noster refugium et virtus: adjutor in tribulationibus quæ invenerunt nos nimis.
Propterea non timebimus dum turbabitur terra, et transferentur montes in cor maris,
Sonuerunt, et turbatæ sunt aquæ eorum; conturbati sunt montes in fortitudine ejus.
Fluminis impetus lætificat civitatem Dei : sanctificavit tabernaculum suum altissimus.
Deus in medio ejus, non commovebitur; adjuvabit eam Deus mane diluculo.
Conturbatæ sunt gentes, et inclinata sunt regna : dedit vocem suam, mota est terra.
Dominus virtutum nobiscum; susceptor noster Deus Jacob.

God is our hope and strength: a very present help in trouble.
Therefore will we not fear, though the earth be moved: and though the hills be carried into the midst of the sea;
Though the waters thereof rage and swell: and though the mountains shake at the tempest of the same.
The rivers of the flood thereof shall make glad the city of God: the holy place of the tabernacle of the most Highest.
God is in the midst of her, therefore shall she not be removed: God shall help her, and that right early.
The heathen make much ado, and the kingdoms are moved: but God hath shewed his voice, and the earth shall melt away.
The Lord of hosts is with us: the God of Jacob is our refuge.
