Redeemed Hymn 44 – o God the Rock of Ages

“But thou art the same, and thy years shall have no end” Ps 102:27

1 O God the Rock of Ages

Who evermore hast been,

What time the tempest rages

Our dwelling place serene;

Before thy first creations,

O lord, the same as now,

To endless generations

The everlasting Thou!


2 Our years are like the shadows

On sunny hills that lie,

Or grasses in the meadows

That blossom but to die.

A sleep, a dream a story

By strangers quickly told,

 An unremaining glory

Of things that soon are old,


3 0 Thou who canst not slumber

Whose light grows never pale,

Teach us aright to number

Our years before they fail

On us Thy mercy lighten,

On us Thy goodness rest,

And let Thy spirit brighten

The hearts Thyself hast blessed.


4 Lord, crown our faith’s endeavour

With beauty and with grace,

Till, clothed in light forever,

We see Thee face to face,

A joy to language measures,

A fountain brimming o’er

And endless flow of pleasures;

An ocean without shore.
