1. O God,     our help  in a   -ges past, Our     hope  for years to  come, 
2. Be-fore    the hills in or  -der stood, Or     earth re-ceived her frame,
3. Time, like an  ev-   er-roll-ing stream, Bears all   its sons  a  -way;

1. Our  shel-ter from  the   storm-y    blast, And our e-ter     -nal  home.
2. From ev  -er  last -ing   Thou art   God,   to  en -less years the  same.
3. They fly, for-got  -ten,  as a dream Dies   at  the op-'       ning day.
4. Be   Thou our guide while life shall last,  And our e-ter     -nal  home.
