HYMN 223

C.M.S. 92 H.C. 279 C.M (FE 242) 
"Lord thou hast been our dwelling
place in all generations" - Ps. 90:1

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 defense 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.  Time, like an ever-rolling stream, 

     Bears all its sons away;

     They fly forgotten, as a dream 

     Dies at the opening day.

5.  A thousand ages in thy sight

     Are like an evening gone;

     Short as the watch that ends the night 

     Before the rising sun.  Amen
