As the dust settles over the heap that was the World Trade Center complex, let us hear the Word of the Lord...

Psalm 46
For the director of music. Of the Sons of Korah.
According to lamoth. A song.

1God is our refuge and strength,
an ever present help in trouble.
2Therefore we will not fear, though the
earth give way
and the mountains fall into the heart of
the sea,
3though its waters roar and foam
and the mountains quake with their
surging.

4There is a river whose streams make glad
the city of God,
the holy place where the Most High
dwells.
5God is within her, she will not fall;
God will help her at break of day.
6Nations are in uproar, kingdoms fall;
he lifts his voice, the earth melts.

7The Lord Almighty is with us;
the God of Jacob is our fortress.

8Come and see the works of the Lord.
the desolations he has brought on the
earth.
9He makes wars cease to the ends of the
earth;
he breaks the bow and shatters the spear,
he burns the shields with fire.
10"Be still and know that I am God;
I will be exalted among the nations,
I will be exalted in the earth."

11The Lord Almighty is with us;
the God of Jacob is our fortress.
