Hymn: Age after age has rolled away
Songs of Zion
 
Age after age has rolled away
Since man first dwell in mortal clay
And countless millions slept in death
That once supplied a place on earth
 
According to the fate of man
Which God had fixed in his own plan
So age must come and age must go
Till work complete is here below
 
Which had been seen by saints of old
And by the prophets were foretold
Which wondrous things are drawing near
That Enoch saw and saints did cheer [p. [167]]
