Our God Our Help In Ages Past

Our God, our help in ages past,
Our hope for years to come,
Our shelter from the stormy blast,
And our eternal home. Under the shadow of Thy throne
Thy saints have dwelt secure;
Sufficient is Thine arm alone,
And our defence is sure. Before the hills in order stood,
Or earth received her frame,
From everlasting Thou art God,
To endless years the same. Thy Word commands our flesh to dust,
“Return, ye sons of men:”
All nations rose from earth at first,
And turn to earth again. A thousand ages in Thy sightAre like an evening gone;Short as the watch that ends the nightBefore the rising sun. The busy tribes of flesh and blood,With all their lives and cares,Are carried downwards by the flood,And lost in following years. Time, like an ever rolling stream,Bears all its sons away;They fly, forgotten, as a dreamDies at the opening day. Like flowery fields the nations standPleased with the morning light;The flowers beneath the mower’s handLie withering ere ‘tis night. Our God, our help in ages past,Our hope for years to come,Be Thou our guard while troubles last,And our eternal home.

Due to the current COVID-19 crisis, we are having to change the way we are running. We would appreciate where possible to do funeral arrangements over the phone. We are aware this is not ideal, neither is it the way we wish to be operating. Understandably due to the COVID-19 crisis, we are adopting these methods to be as compliant as possible with government guidance. This will also apply to the manner in how we are conducting the funerals, we will ensure to do our utmost to remain highly respectful as usual, with as many of our traditions still in place.

For the safety of our staff and yourselves, we are adapting daily to the guidelines set by the government and local authorities.

For any queries or concerns please do contact any of our offices or general enquires on 01252 616431.
