Hymn 45Play music
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 formed the earth,
And all the world abroad-
E'en Thou from everlasting art
To everlasting, God.
O Lord, as our brief days have been
Wherein we grief have had,
And years wherein we ill have seen,`
So do Thou make us glad.
Oh,let Thy work and power appear
Thy servants' face before;
And show unto their children dear
Thy glory evermore.
