Like Psalm 16:8, this song points out that we shall not be moved if we keep the Lord on our right hand. The original text and tune are both anonymous. “I Shall Not Be Moved” is considered a traditional American folk song whose lyrics most likely stretch back to the slave era, although there is no indication of when the song was written or who wrote it. 

Typical of spiritual folk songs, “I Shall Not Be Moved” consists of a series of stanzas where only a single line changed for each verse. 

Partial Lyrics
I shall not, I shall not be moved
I shall not, I shall not be moved
Just like a tree that's planted by the water
I shall not be moved
