    O God, Our Help in Ages Past

    With dignity

    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. Within the shadow of thy throne,

    Still may we dwell 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. O God, our help in ages past,

    Our hope for years to come,

    Be thou our guide while life shall last

    And our eternal home.
