013: O God, our Help in ages past

- Person and praise

Add to Powerpoint Creator

Tunes:St Ann, 127
Meter:C.M.

1.
O God, our help in ages past,
Our hope for years to come,
Our shelter from the stormy blast,
And our eternal home.

2.
Under the shadow of thy throne
Thy saints have dwelt secure;
Sufficient is thine arm alone
And our defense is sure.

3.
Before the hills in order stood,
Or earth received her frame,
From everlasting thou art God,
To endless years the same.

4.
A thousand ages in thy sight
Are like an evening gone,
Short as the watch that ends the night
Before the rising sun.

5.
Time, like an ever-rolling stream,
Bears all its sons away;
They fly forgotten, as a dream
Dies at the opening day.

6.
O God, our help in ages past,
Our hope for years to come,
Be thou our guard while life shall last,
And our eternal home.


Isaac Watts (1674-1748)
