Hymn/Song Information

Ere mountains reared their forms sublime




Ere mountains reared
their forms sublime,
Or Heav’n and earth in order stood,
Before the birth of ancient time,
From everlasting Thou art God.


A thousand ages, in their flight,
With Thee are as a fleeting day;
Past, present, future, to Thy sight
At once their various
scenes display.


But our brief life’s
a shadowy dream,
A passing thought that soon is o’er,
That fades with
morning’s earliest beam,
And fills the musing mind no more.


To us, O Lord, the wisdom give
Each passing moment so to spend,
That we at length with Thee may live
Where life and bliss shall never end.
