Words by Isaac Watts (1674-1748), 1719Tune: ST. ANNE by William Croft, 1708Key signature: C major (no sharps or flats)Meter: 18.104.22.168Public DomainOrgan Performance at Hymns Without Words1. O God, our help in ages past, Our hope for years to come, Our shelter from the stormy blast, And our eternal home.2. Before the hills in order stood, Or earth received her frame, From everlasting Thou art God, To endless years the same.3. Time, like an everrolling stream, Bears all its sons away; They fly, forgotten, as a dream Dies at the op’ning day.4. O God, our help in ages past, Our hope for years to come, Be Thou our guard while life shall last, And our eternal home.
