O God, our help in ages past


    • O God, our help in ages past, 
    • Our hope for years to come, 
    • Our shelter from the stormy blast, 
    • And our eternal home. 

    • Under the shadow of Thy throne 
    • Thy saints have dwelt secure; 
    • Sufficient is Thine arm alone, 
    • And our defence is sure. 

    • Before the hills in order stood, 
    • Or earth received her frame, 
    • From everlasting Thou art God, 
    • To endless years the same. 

    • A thousand ages in Thy sight 
    • Are like an evening gone, 
    • Short as the watch that ends the night 
    • Before the rising sun. 

    • Time, like an ever-rolling stream, 
    • Bears all its sons away; 
    • They fly forgotten, as a dream 
    • Dies at the opening day. 

    • O God, our help in ages past, 
    • Our hope for years to come, 
    • Be Thou our guard while troubles last, 
    • And our eternal home.
