VERSE 1:
O God, our help in ages past,
our hope for years to come,
our shelter from the stormy blast,
and our eternal home.

VERSE 2:
Under the shadow of Your throne,
Your saints have dwelt secure;
sufficient is your arm alone,
and our defense is sure.

VERSE 3:
Before the hills in order stood,
or earth received its frame,
from everlasting, You are God,
to endless years the same.

VERSE 4:
A thousand ages, in Your sight,
are like an evening gone;
short as the watch that ends the night,
before the rising sun.
