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.

It's been playing in my mind all night.

Thank you for this timeless hymnal. Taken with Psalm 91, it is so reassuring and refreshing. A good anthem for all times especially for wrapping up 2018 our year of “New Heights with Godly Possibilities”. Jehovah, you are the only true God, our God, my God and the God of our fathers. Thank You Jesus.

The song, "O God our help", has since its arrival in the religious world remained, the most inspirational, soul elevating and captivating song, drawing you closer to the creator each time it is sung. We look up to God from whom cometh our help. Amen.

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.
