This hymn by Isaac Watts paraphrases Psalm 90, telling how our God is everlasting and will be our help through all of our years.This 'Come And Praise' hymn book was central to the collective worship at my school - right up until I left in 1985 when the last hymn we sung together was 'One More Step'. The text of this hymn was written in German in 1752 and translated into English in 1855 by Jane Laurie Borthwick.
