1 Lord, thou hast been our dwelling place
through all the ages of our race;
before the mountains had their birth,
or ever thou hadst formed the earth,
from everlasting thou art God,
to everlasting our abode.
2 O teach thou us to count our days,
and set our hearts on wisdom’s ways;
turn, Lord, to us in our distress
in pity now thy servants bless;
let mercy’s dawn dispel our night,
and all our day with joy be bright.
3 O send the day of joy and light,
for long has been our sorrow’s night;
afflicted through the weary years,
we wait until thy help appears;
from age to age with us abide;
in us let God be glorified.
4 So let there be on us bestowed
the beauty of the Lord our God;
the work accomplished by our hand
establish thou, and make it stand;
yea, let our hopeful labor be
established evermore by thee.
