Though the nations rage,

Kingdoms rise and fall,

There is still one King

Reigning over all!

So I will not fear for this truth remains:

That my God is the Ancient of Days.

 

Chorus:

None above Him, none before Him,

All of time in His hands;

For His throne it shall remain and ever stand.

All the power, all the glory,

I will trust in His name,

For my God is the Ancient of Days.

Though the dread of night

Overwhelms my soul,

He is here with me;

I am not alone.

O His love is sure and He knows my name,

For my God is the Ancient of Days.

Though I may not see

What the future brings,

I will watch and wait

For the Saviour King!

Then my joy complete, standing face to face

In the presence of the Ancient of Days!

The Story Behind the Hymn


 

______________________________________________


We are commanded to, "Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs." (Colossians 3:16). Accordingly, we incorporate hymns into our regular Sunday morning worship at Pacific Hope Church. We firmly believe in equipping God's people with the knowledge of His Word through sound teaching in our classes, Bible studies, and even in our Sunday morning worship. Our worship will always be with the purpose of exalting the Lord to His proper place; it is never man-centered or seeking to create an emotional experience.
