Excerpt from The Friend, Vol. 64: A Religious and Literary Journal God is our refuge and strength. A very present help in trouble. Therefore will t we fear, though the earth be removed, and though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea: Though the waters thereof roar and be troubled, though the mountains shake with the swelling thereof. There is a river the streams whereof make glad the city of God, the holy place of the tabernacle of the Most High.'
