Psalm 90 Part 1

Author: Isaac Watts Meter: 8.6.8.6 Appears in 1,191 hymnals Scripture: Psalm 90:1-5 First Line: Our God, our help in ages past Lyrics: Our God, our help in ages past, Our hope for years to come, Our shelter from the stormy blast, And our eternal home. Under the shadow of thy throne Thy saints have dwelt secure; Sufficient is thine arm alone, And our defence is sure. Before the hills in order stood, Or earth received her frame, From everlasting thou art God, To endless years the same. Thy word commands our flesh to dust, "Return, ye sons of men:" All nations rose from earth at first, And turn to earth again. A thousand ages in thy sight Are like an evening gone; Short as the watch that ends the night Before the rising sun. [The busy tribes of flesh and blood, With all their lives and cares, Are carried downwards by the flood, And lost in following years. Time, like an ever-rolling stream, Bears all its sons away; They fly, forgotten, as a dream Dies at the op'ning day. Like flowery fields the nations stand Pleased with the morning light; The flowers beneath the mower's hand Lie with'ring ere 'tis night.] Our God, our help in ages past, Our hope for years to come, Be thou our guard while troubles last, And our eternal home. Topics: Funeral psalm; Man his vanity as mortal; Mortality of man; Saints rewarded at last; Frailty of man; Life short and feeble; Psalm for a funeral; Death the effect of sin; God eternal, and man mortal; Mortality and God's eternity; Old age death

Psalm 90

Author: Isaac Watts Meter: 8.8.8.8 Appears in 158 hymnals Scripture: Psalm 90 First Line: Through every age, eternal God Lyrics: Through every age, eternal God, Thou art our rest, our safe abode; High was thy throne ere heav'n was made, Or earth thy humble footstool laid. Long hadst thou reigned ere time began, Or dust was fashioned to a man; And long thy kingdom shall endure When earth and time shall be no more. But man, weak man, is born to die, Made up of guilt and vanity; Thy dreadful sentence, Lord, was just, "Return, ye sinners, to your dust." [A thousand of our years amount Scarce to a day in thine account; Like yesterday's departed light, Or the last watch of ending night. Death, like an overflowing stream, Sweeps us away; our life's a dream, An empty tale, a morning flower, Cut down and withered in an hour.] [Our age to seventy years is set; How short the time! how frail the state! And if to eighty we arrive, We rather sigh and groan than live. But O how oft thy wrath appears, And cuts off our expected years! Thy wrath awakes our humble dread; We fear the power that strikes us dead.] Teach us, O Lord, how frail is man; And kindly lengthen out our span, Till a wise care of piety Fit us to die, and dwell with thee. Topics: Funeral psalm; Man his vanity as mortal; Mortality of man; Saints rewarded at last; Frailty of man; Life short and feeble; Psalm for a funeral; Death the effect of sin; God eternal, and man mortal; Mortality and God's eternity; Old age death

Psalm 90

Author: Isaac Watts Meter: 6.6.8.6 Appears in 165 hymnals Scripture: Psalm 90:5 First Line: Lord, what a feeble piece Lyrics: Lord, what a feeble piece Is this our mortal frame! Our life how poor a trifle 'tis, That scarce deserves the name! Alas, the brittle clay That built our body first! And every month, and every day, 'Tis mould'ring back to dust. Our moments fly apace, Nor will our minutes stay; Just like a flood, our hasty days Are sweeping us away. Well, if our days must fly, We'll keep their end in sight; We'll spend them all in wisdom's way, And let them speed their flight. They'll waft us sooner o'er This life's tempestuous sea; Soon we shall reach the peaceful shore Of blest eternity. Topics: Funeral psalm; Man his vanity as mortal; Mortality of man; Saints rewarded at last; Frailty of man; Life short and feeble; Psalm for a funeral; Death the effect of sin; God eternal, and man mortal; Mortality and God's eternity; Old age death

O God, the Rock of Ages

Author: Edward H. Bickersteth Meter: 7.6.7.6 D Appears in 196 hymnals Scripture: Psalm 90 First Line: O, God the Rock of Ages Lyrics: 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, and unremaining glory of things that soon are old. 3 O 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 endeavor with beauty and with grace, till, clothed in light forever, we see thee face to face: a joy no language measures; a fountain brimming o'er; an endless flow of pleasures; an ocean without shore.

Psalm 90: Lord, thou hast been our dwelling-place

Meter: 8.6.8.6 Appears in 21 hymnals Scripture: Psalm 90 First Line: Lord, thou hast been our dwelling-place Lyrics: Lord, thou hast been our dwelling-place in generations all. Before thou ever hadst brought forth the mountains great or small; Ere ever thou hadst form’d the earth, and all the world abroad; Ev’n thou from everlasting art to everlasting God. Thou dost unto destruction man that is mortal turn; And unto them thou say’st, Again, ye sons of men, return. Because a thousand years appear no more before thy sight Than yesterday, when it is past, or than a watch by night. As with an overflowing flood thou carry’st them away: They like a sleep are, like the grass that grows at morn are they. At morn it flourishes and grows, cut down at ev’n doth fade. For by thine anger we’re consum’d, thy wrath makes us afraid. Our sins thou and iniquities dost in thy presence place, And sett’st our secret faults before the brightness of thy face. For in thine anger all our days do pass on to an end; And as a tale that hath been told, so we our years do spend. Threescore and ten years do sum up our days and years, we see; Or, if, by reason of more strength, in some fourscore they be: Yet doth the strength of such old men but grief and labour prove; For it is soon cut off, and we fly hence, and soon remove. Who knows the power of thy wrath? according to thy fear So is thy wrath: Lord, teach thou us our end in mind to bear; And so to count our days, that we our hearts may still apply To learn thy wisdom and thy truth, that we may live thereby. Turn yet again to us, O Lord, how long thus shall it be? Let it repent thee now for those that servants are to thee. O with thy tender mercies, Lord, us early satisfy; So we rejoice shall all our days, and still be glad in thee. According as the days have been, wherein we grief have had, And years wherein we ill have seen, so do thou make us glad. O let thy work and pow’r appear thy servants’ face before; And shew unto their children dear thy glory evermore: And let the beauty of the Lord our God be us upon: Our handy-works establish thou, establish them each one.

Great God! how infinite art thou!

Author: Watts Meter: 8.6.8.6 Appears in 314 hymnals Scripture: Psalm 90:1-2 Lyrics: 1 Great God! how infinite art thou! What worthless worms are we! Let the whole race of creatures bow, And pay their praise to thee. 2 Thy throne eternal ages stood, Ere seas or stars were made; Thou art the ever-living God, Were all the nations dead. 3 Eternity, with all its years, Stands present in thy view; To thee, there's nothing old appears; To thee there's nothing new. 4 Our lives through various scenes are drawn, And vexed with trifling cares, While thine eternal thought moves on Thine undisturbed affairs. 5 Great God! how infinite art thou! What worthless worms are we! Let the whole race of creatures bow, And pay their praise to thee. Topics: Attributes of God Unity; The Same
