Thou, Lord, hast been our sure defence

Author: J. H. Hymnal: The Whole Book of Psalms #XC (1790) Hymnal Title: The Whole Book of Psalms Lyrics: 1 Thou, Lord, hast been our sure defence, our place of ease and rest, In all times past, yea, so long since as cannot be exprest. 2 Before was made mountain or hill, the earth and world abroad From age to age, and always still for ever thou art God. 3 Thou grindest man through grief and pain to dust or clay, and then Thou unto them dost say again, Return ye sons of men. 4 The lasting of a thousand years, what is it in thy sight? As yesterday it doth appear, or as a watch by night. 5 So soon as thou dost scatter them, then is their life and trade Ev'n as a sleep, or like the grass, whose beauty soon doth fade, 6 Which in the morning shines full bright, but fadeth suddenly, And is cut down before the night, all withered, dead, and dry. 7 For through thine anger we consume, our might is much decay'd, And of thy fervent wrath, O Lord, we are full sore afraid. 8 The wicked works, that we have wrought, thou sett'st before thy eye, Our privy faults, yea all our thoughts thy countenance doth spy. 9 For through thy wrath our days do waste, thereof doth nought remain, Our years consume as doth a blast, and are not call'd again. 10 The time of our abode on earth is threescore years and ten; But if we come to fourscore years, our life is grievous then: The Second Part. 11 For of this time the strength and chief we dote so much upon, Is nothing else but pain and grief, and we as blasts are gone. 12 What man doth know what power and what might thy anger hath? Or in his heart, who doth thee fear, according to thy wrath? 13 Instruct us, Lord, to know and try how long our days remain; That so we may our hearts apply true wisdom to attain. 14 Return, O Lord, how long wilt thou in thy great wrath proceed? Shew favour to thy servants now, and help them at their need: 15 Refresh us with thy mercy soon, then shall we joyful be; All times so long as life doth last in heart rejoice will we. 16 As thou hast plagued us before, now also make us glad, And for the years wherein full sore affliction we have had. 17 O let thy work and pow'r appear, and on thy servants light, And shew unto thy children dear thy glory and thy might: 18 Lord, let thy grace and glory stand on us thy servants thus; Confirm the works we take in hand, and prosper them to us.

Hymnal: The Whole Booke of Psalmes #51 (1640) Hymnal Title: The Whole Booke of Psalmes First Line: Thou Lord hast been our sure defence Lyrics: 1 Lord, hast been our sure defence, our place of ease and rest: In all times past, yea so long since, as cannot be exprest. 2 Ere there was made mountaine or hill, the earth and world abroad: From age to age, and alwaies still for ever thou art God. 3 Thou grindest man through grief and paine to dust or clay, and then, And then thou saist againe returne, againe ye sonnes of men. 4 The lasting of a thousand yeares, what is it in thy sight? As yesterday it doth appeare, or as a watch by night. 5 So soone as thou dost scatter them, then is their life and trade All as asleepe, and like the grasse, whose beauty soon doth fade. 6 Which in the morning shines full bright but fadeth by and by: And is cut down ere it be night, all withered, dead, and drie. 7 For through thine anger we consume, our might is much decaid: And of thy fervent wrath and fume we are full sore afraid. 8 The wicked works that we have wrought thou setst before thine eye: Our privy faults, yea, eke our thoughts thy countenance doth spie. 9 For through thy wrath our daies do wast, thereof doth nought remaine: Our yeares consume as words or blsts, and are not cal'd againe. 10 Our time is threescore yeares and ten, That we do live on mold: If one see fourscore, surely then, we count him wondrous old. The second Part: 11 Yet of this time the strength and chief the which we count upon, Is nothing els but painefull griefe, and we as blasts are gone. 12 Who once doth know what strength is there what might thine anger hath: Or in his heart who doth thee feare according to thy wrath? 13 Instruct us Lord to know and try, how long our daies remaine: That then we may our hearts apply, true wisdome to attaine. 14 Returne, O Lord, how long wilt thou forth on thy wrath proceed? Shew favour to thy servants now, and help them at their need. 15 Refresh us with thy mercy soone, then shall we joyful be, All times so long as life doth last, in heart rejoyce will we. 16 As thou hast plagued us before, now also make us glad: And for the yeares wherein full sore affliction we have had. 17 O let thy work and power appeare, and on thy servants light: And shew unto thy children deare, thy glory and thy might. 18 Lord, let thy grace and glory stand on us thy servants thus: Confirme the works we take in hand, Lord prosper them to us.
