God of the Ages

We sang the hymn "God of the Ages" this past Sunday in church. I couldn't help to sing with a smile on my face because of the amazing truth this hymn communicates. I couldn't help but rejoice that God IS the God of the ages...past, present, future...and a sovereign God, who plans our paths in mercy and love.

Through this waiting and wondering what might happen with this pregnancy, I've been reminded of God's goodness and faithfulness to us. There is peace in the truth that God has been good and faithful to me all these many years, through trial and joy. Why should He stop now? Or, why should I stop trusting Him now?

Here are the lyics to this hymn...and like I was on Sunday, be blessed by these words that can be fitting for ANY and ALL situations that come our way.

God of the ages, History's Maker,
planning our pathway,
holding us fast,
shaping in mercy
all that concerns us:
Father, we praise You,
Lord of the past.

God of this morning, Gladly your children
worship before You, trustingly bow:
Teach us to know You
Always among us,
Quietly sovereign,
Lord of our now.

God of tomorrow,
strong Overcomer,
Princes of darkness
own your command:
What then can harm us?
We are your people,
Now and forever
kept by your hand.

Lord of past ages,
Lord of this morning,
Lord of the future,
Help us, we pray:
Teach us to trust You,
Love and obey You,
Crown you each moment
Lord of today.

Our family has been learning this hymn and we love it too. Although no matter how many times we have sung it we always get hung up on some of the words and have a good laugh.
