O God, our help in ages past

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 Thy throne
  Thy saints have dwelt secure;
Sufficient is Thine arm alone,
  And our defence is sure.
3
Before the hills in order stood,
  Or earth received her frame,
From everlasting Thou art God,
  To endless years the same.
4
A thousand ages in Thy 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,
  Bears all its sons away;
They fly forgotten, as a dream
  Dies at the opening day.
6
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.

I woke up with this song in my head. This song is so soothing and comforting to me at this moment. I believe God will come through for me at every point of this challenge I'm going through at the moment.

This song came to my mind while praying for my nation Nigeria. We sure do need God's help. He alone has been our help in times past. And our hope for years to come.

Please if you read this comment, pray for Nigeria, we are going through stuff now.

As I worshiped this morning, the Lord placed this song in my heart. This has been a trying period, but God is reassuring me of being the same yesterday, Today and Forever.

I almost lost a dear friend yesterday. Thank God I did not lose her. With a grateful heart to God, I came looking for the lyrics of this hymn.

It is so reassuring.

I heard this song being sung yesterday morning and woke up. No one else was awake at that time and I knew that angels were singing our (mine and my deceased husband) favorite hymn. I wanted to learn all the verses by heart and searched for it and found it. My faith and hope are with my loving king Jesus. I live with His abundant love, waiting to be called to His home.

I heard a Nurse singing the song this evening and I joined her but none of knew the lyrics. So I decided to check it up and I was amazed by the piano accompaniment. I am still singing it.... What a great encouragement. Praise the Lord.

I woke up rushing to work that morning as while strolling to the park. I wanted to worship on the go and God dropped this song in my mind. I searched for the lyrics and it was an overwhelming moment. One which I won't recover from so soon.

I was awakened at 1:00 a. m. est and after praying with my 2 daughters the hymn began to play in my spirit. I sang the 1st verse but wanted more so I looked it up and sang every verse at 1:46 a. m. to the Lord. He is my help!
