Hymn: O God, Our Help in Ages Past
O God our help in ages past, Our hope for years to come, Our shelter from the stormy blast, And our eternal home! Tune: St. Anne A thousand ages in thy sight Are like an evening gone, Short as the watch that ends the night, Before the rising sun. O God, our help in ages past, Our hope for years to come, Be thou our guide while troubles last, And our eternal home.
Mayor for City of Peterborough Joel Chandler, Royal Canadian Legion Branch 52 President
Hymn: Abide With Me
Abide with me; fast falls the eventide; The darkness deepens; Lord, with me abide; When other helpers fail, and comforts flee. Help of the helpless, O abide with me. I need thy presence every passing hour; What but thy grace can foil the tempter’s power? Who like thyself my guide and stay can be? Through cloud and sunshine, Lord, abide with me. Tune: Eventide I fear no foe with thee at hand to bless, Ills have no weight, and tears no bitterness; Where is death’s sting? Where, grave, thy victory? I triumph still, if thou abide with me.
