Hymn/Song Information

Lord hast been our sure defense our




Lord, hast been our sure defense,
our place of ease and rest,
In all times past, yea, so long since
as cannot be expressed.


Before was made mountain or hill,
the earth and world abroad
From age to age, and always still
for ever thou art God.


Thou grindest man through grief and pain
to dust or clay, and then
Thou unto them dost say again,
Return, ye sons of men.


The lasting of a thousand years,
what is it in thy sight?
As yesterday it doth appear,
or as a watch by night.


So soon as thou dost scatter them,
then is their life and trade
E'en as a sleep, or like the grass,
whose beauty soon doth fade;


Which in the morning shines full bright,
but fadeth suddenly,
And is cut down before the night,
all withered, dead, and dry.


For through thine anger we consume,
our might is much decayed,
And of thy fervent wrath, O Lord,
we are full sore afraid.


The wicked works that we have wrought,
thou sett'st before thy eye,
Our privy faults, yea, all our thoughts
thy countenance doth spy.


For through thy wrath our days do waste,
thereof doth nought remain;
Our years consume as doth a blast,
and are not called again.


The time of our abode on earth
is threescore years and ten;
But if we come to fourscore years,
our life is grievous then.
