Here is a responsive litany from Psalm 46: 1-3, 6-11.

Responsive Litany
(Psalm 46: 1-3, 6-11)

God is our refuge and our strength,
an ever-present help in distress.

Though the earth trembles,
and mountains slide into the sea,
we will not fear.

Waters may rise and roar,
and mountains shake at their surging;
but the God of hosts is with us--
our stronghold, the God of Israel.

Even if nations are in chaos, and kingdoms fall,
God's voice resounds; the earth melts away.

Yahweh is with us;
the God of Israel is our stronghold.

Come!  See the deeds of the Most High,
the marvellous things God has done on earth;
all over the world, God has stopped wars--
breaking bows, splintering spears,
burning the shields with fire.
"Be still! and know that I am God,
exalted among the nations, exalted upon the earth."

The Most High is with us;
our stronghold is the God of Israel.
