 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.  Before the hills in order stood,
        Or Earth received her frame,
     From everlasting Thou art God,
       To endless years the same.
 3.  A thousand ages in Thy sight
        Are like an evening gone;
     Short as the watch that ends the night
       Before the rising sun.
 4.  Our God our help in ages past,
        Our hope for years to come,
     Be Thou our guard while life shall last,
        And our eternal Home.
