O God, Our Help In Ages Past

The more I think about God and His character, the more my trust in Him grows. I can hardly sing this song without tears. I'm so grateful for a God who has been faithful in the past and will continue to carry us through the future. 

O God, Our Help In Ages Past
by Isaac Watts

  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. A thousand ages in Thy sight
    Are like an evening gone;
    Short as the watch that ends the night
    Before the rising sun.
  5. O God, our help in ages past,
    Our hope for years to come,
    Be Thou our guard while troubles last,
    And our eternal home.

I love this rendition of this hymn in the following video.



And here is another song, I think from the same cd, that I have listened to over and over.

  12. The hymn is a favorite and so comforting. We are not alone, while new to me is a great song. I love hearing the acapella versions, wish our congregation did more of this. Praying you are having good days this week!

  13. Hi there Gina & family, I recently read Psalm 27 in my devos and for some odd reason your names would not leave my heart while reading. We pray, that while in this dark valley of cancer, the Light of the LORD will guide and comfort you. https://youtu.be/WB9xcFvZyBk
