Psalm 46:1-11 – a Zambian revision

Our Creator who is our protector and power and ever with us,
Even when the economy depreciates and political scandal rises,
Will not be shaken.
God is the source of happiness.
Your word brings joy to us.
Your presence will always be with us to render help.
At the sound of your voice troubles come to a standstill.
God who fights our battles is always present in our midst.
Neighbours, see what God, the peace maker, has done.
God of our ancestors is our protector.
