THE ANNOUNCEMENTS

HYMN No. 57 (Tune: St. Anne) ... ... ... ... William Croft

Our God, our help in ages past, Before the hills in order stood,
Our hope for years to come, Or earth received her frame,
Our shelter from the stormy blast From everlasting Thou are God,
And our eternal home: To endless years the same.

Under the shadow of Thy throne A thousand ages in Thy sight
Thy saints have dwelt secure; Are like an evening gone;
Sufficient in Thine arm alone, Short as the watch that ends the night
And our defence is sure. Before the rising sun.

Our God, our help in ages past,
Our hope for years to come,
Be Thou our guard while troubles last,
And our eternal home. Amen
Isaac Watts.
