Isaac Watts wrote this beloved hymn in 1708. The text is based on Psalm 90. The melody is “St. Anne” by William Croft. In some Christian hymnals, the first line is changed to “O God, Our Help in Ages Past,” and some of the original 9 stanzas are omitted. However, it is still a popular hymn in both Christian and Jewish music.
I hope you enjoy this arrangement, played on double strung harp and Oriole (soprano) recorder!
