Lord, Through All The Generations


Lord, through
all the
generations
Of the children
of our race,
In our fears and
tribulations,
Thou hast been
our dwelling
place.
Ere the vast and
wide creation
By Thy word was
caused to be,
Or the mountains
held their
station,
Thou art God
eternally.
Each succeeding
generation
At Thy mighty
word appears;
Thou dost count
in time’s
duration
One day as a
thousand years.
Death, with
swift and sudden
warning,
Calls us from
life’s dream
away,
Like the grass,
green in the
morning,
Withered ere the
close of day.Long the
clouds of evil
lower;
Bless us now
with gladsome
days;
Let Thy servants
see Thy power,
Let their
children learn
Thy praise.
On us let the
grace and beauty
Of the Lord our
God remain,
Strengthen us
for noble duty
That our work be
not in vain.
