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.


Thank You Lord!

You are truly our Emmanuel. You're our help in ages past, our hope for years to come, our shelter from the stormy blast, and our eternal home.

I woke up thanking God for who He is and all He created. I stumbled on this verse of the scripture 👇🏽👇🏽

Lord, you have been our dwelling place throughout all generations. Before the mountains were born or you brought forth the whole world, from everlasting to everlasting you are God. Psalms 90:1‭-‬2 NIV

The world right now seems a difficult place to live in, I had to sing this song to remind myself that "LIVING IN GOD" is the only solution to maintaining ones sanity. It is well

A mighty fortress is my God! A bulwark that never fails. It is 22:37pm on 2nd January 2021, Just laid down on my bed after a stressful day. On reflection 2020 has been very trying, turmoiltous and challenging I have been very depressed though I lie tried to convince myself that am not because I know God got me. To God be the glory despite all odds I and my house did not beg for bread and even gave out. I may not know what 2021 holds bit I know God has been my help in ages past and surely he is the God that changeth not and he created 2021. I therefore commit to him my all for his plans to unfold for me and my family. Thanks @ hymnal.net for this evergreen hymns. " before the hills in order stood, or earth received its frame, from everlasting thou art God and endless years the same" Glory!

I woke up on New Year’s Day with the words of this hymn sounding in my mind. How appropriate! God is our hope for the year/ years ahead and ‘our eternal home’.

The daily challenges of the past year have had a cumulative effect on many of us leaving many people both weary and wary. We are weary from the upsetting news that filled our screens every day and night for most of the last year. We are wary because we don't know what is ahead of us. But the good news is this, God is still in control.

This song ushers me into 2021 with the strength of hope. O God, our help in ages past, Our hope for years to come,
