O God Our Help in Ages Past
Words: Isaac Watts, 1719, Psalm 90:1-5 (parts)
Music: "St. Anne" William Croft, 1708
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.
