O God, our Help

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

Verse 2:
Under the shadow of Thy throne
Still may we dwell secure;
Sufficient is Thine arm alone,
And our defence is sure.

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

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

Isaac Watts/H.W. Greatorex
