O God, our help in ages past

O God, our help in ages past,
  Our hope for years to come,
Our shelter from the stormy blast,
  And our eternal home.
Under the shadow of Thy throne
  Thy saints have dwelt secure;
Sufficient is Thine arm alone,
  And our defence is sure.
Before the hills in order stood,
  Or earth received her frame,
From everlasting Thou art God,
  To endless years the same.
A thousand ages in Thy sight
  Are like an evening gone;
Short as the watch that ends the night
  Before the rising sun.
Time, like an ever-rolling stream,
  Bears all its sons away;
They fly forgotten, as a dream
  Dies at the opening day.
O God, our help in ages past,
  Our hope for years to come,
Be Thou our guard while life shall last,
  And our eternal home.

The lyrics is rich and it's really telling us what God is to us. We should not be moved cause He got the whole world in His hand. l love the song I remember from my secondary school days. All I can say is thank You Lord for bringing us this far!

...for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.

So that we may BOLDLY say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.

If God has been our help in ages past then we shall not be moved in 2018. We thank God for He will continually be our refuge, security, guard, shepherd, sufficiency, all in all and above all our eternal abode.

Do we really realize this God is a home?

Being blessed by this hymn tonight, I say, "Thank You Lord for making Yourself a Home, eternal."
