Dear Friend of Hymnary,

As you know, we don't ask for money too often. But we're asking now.

So before you hit the "close" button on this box, please consider a donation to keep Hymnary going.

More than half a million people come here every month -- worship leaders, hymnologists, hymn lovers and more -- people who now have access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet thanks to this site. But keeping all of this afloat does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you please consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

You can make your tax-deductible contribution by clicking the Donate button below, or you can send a check to Hymnary at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary team,

Burial of the Dead

Lord, thou hast been our refuge: from one generation to another

Published in 26 hymnals

Full Text

1 LORD, thou hast been our refuge from one generation to another.
2 Before the mountains were brought forth or ever the earth and the world were made thou art God from everlasting and world without end.
3 Thou turnest man to destruction; again thou sayest, Come again ye children of me.
4 For a thousand years in thy sight are but as yesterday; seeing that is past as a watch in the night.
5 As soon as Thou scatterest them they are even as a sleep and fade away suddenly like the grass.
6 In the morning it is green and groweth up but in the evening is it cut down, dried up and withered.
7 Fro we consume away in thy displeasure and are afraid at thy wrathful indignation.
8 Thou hast set our misdeeds before thee and our secret sins in the light of thy countenance.
9 For when thou art angry, all our days are gone; we bring our years to an end as it were a tale that is told.
10 The days of our age are threescore years and ten and though men be so strong that they come to fourscore years, yet is their strength then but labour and sorrow so soon passeth it away and we are gone.
11 O teach us to number our days that we may apply our hearts unto wisdom.
Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Ghost;
As it was in the beginning is now, and ever shall be, world without end.
Amen.
