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.

“O God, our help in ages past,

Our hope for years to come,

Our shelter from the stormy blast,

And our eternal home”.

Hope is a Person! Our God, who is Hope, is greater than any event. He can never be taken away.

Hope in God is the backbone- the support- of our faith!

Lord, keep us encouraged in You! Amen.
