Advancing mercenary warriors
Clad in hideous uniform
Mounting horse-like beasts
Morphing into grisly forms
Flutter on the horizon of my mind
Who are these vile creatures
That raid my peace of mind –
The Evil One flexing his muscle
Training his troops to hustle
Readying them to draw the battle line
Child – don’t you know your mind is
The battlefield of this war
Fight back – draw your weapon
My Word is a two-edged sword
Speak it and your enemy must flee
I speak the Word of God –
The LORD of hosts is with us
The God of Jacob our refuge
God is our shelter and our strength
And a very present help in trouble

Psalm 46 – The Bible – God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. Therefore will not 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. Selah.
There is a river, the streams whereof shall make glad the city of God, the holy place of the tabernacles of the most High. God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved: God shall help her, and that right early. The heathen 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. Selah.
Come, behold the works of the LORD, what desolations he hath made in the earth. He maketh wars to cease unto the end of the earth; he breaketh the bow, and cutteth the spear in sunder; he burneth the chariot in the fire. Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth. The LORD of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah.
Note: The second and third parts of this Psalm, I believe, refer to end time prophecy, events that will take place during the Tribulation period and the Millennium. Nevertheless, God is the refuge of His people in any age. Hebrews 13:8 says: Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and today, and for ever.
