Scripture: Psalm 124:8
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 your throne Your saints have dwelt secure;
Sufficient is your arm alone, And our defense is sure.
3 Before the hills in order stood Or earth received its 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, Soon bears us all away;
We fly forgotten, as a dream Dies at the op'ning day.
6 Our God, our help in ages past, Our hope for years to come,
Still be our guard while troubles last And our eternal home!
