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.

Assuredly God is our all in all, He is Timeless, He is now ever-present, He is the beginning (ALPHA), He is the END........ Glory hallelujah God is Our LIFE.

The totality of Man's existence depends on HIM. Apostle Paul Says in him we move, and live in him we have our existence (being).

I charge you brethren, God is ever Present, closer than the air we breathe. I have experience His raw power in my life and that of others.

Sincerely, commit ALL your thoughts and ways to his care, the rest is testimony.

He will go ahead of you to make the crooked way straight, he has done before and will do it again and again...................

Our God was a pillar of Fire at Night and a cloud in the day for the Israelites in the Wilderness. Faith is not enough, Just TRUST GOD ABSOLUTELY and doubt your doubt. Am a living testimony Oh yes I still am. God bless the writer /singer/Listener of this Song. Shalom.

One of my favourite hymns. It gives me the assurance that God is our refuge and strength, A very present help in trouble. He will never leave nor forsake his own in Jesus Mighty Name. Amen

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.
