Contents of's Baptist Hymnal materials

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.	Time, like an ever rolling stream, 
	Bears all its sons away; 
	They fly, forgotten, as a dream 
	Dies at the op'ning day.

6.	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.
