Until these calamities have pass."

"In You, O Lord, I put my trust; Let me never be ashamed;
Deliver me in Your righteousness.

Therefore, for Your names sake,
Lead me and guide me."

Though its waters roar and be troubled,
Though the mountains shake with its swelling....
Be still, and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth!
The Lord of hosts is with us;
The God of Jacob is our refuge." Psalm 46:1-3, 10-11

From the end of the earth I will cry to You,

A strong tower from the enemy.
I will abide in Your tabernacle forever;
I will trust in the shelter of Your wings. Psalm 61:1-4
