079. ERE MOUNATINS REARED THEIR FORMS SUBLIME

Church Hymnal 1941,


1.
Ere mountains reared their forms sublime, 
Or heaven and earth in order stood, 
Before the birth of ancient time, 
From everlasting Thou art God. 

2.
A thousand years are in their flight, 
With Thee but as a fleeting day; 
Past, present, future, to Thy sight 
At once their various scenes display. 

3.
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. 

4.
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.
