Our God, our help in ages past

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

2. Beneath the shadow of your throne
your saints have lived secure;
sufficient is your arm alone,
and our defence is sure.

3. Before the hills in order stood,
or earth received her frame,
from everlasting you are God,
to endless years the same.

4. A thousand ages in your 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,
will bear us all away;
we pass forgotten as a dream
dies with the dawning day.

6. Our God, our help in ages past,
our hope for years to come,
be our defence while life shall last,
and our eternal home.
