From time beyond my memory
your love has been my rock, O Lord;
since childhood days I trusted you,
and in my youth declared your word:
But when the years are passing by,
as friends depart and spirits fail,
O God come quickly to my side
that in your strength I may prevail.
We praise you, God, the Holy One,
proclaim your love from day to day;
exalt your triumphs to the skies
and trust your mercy, come what may:
Sing glory to the Father, Son -
and to the Spirit glory be;
let hymns to God begun on earth
resound through all eternity!
