Hymn Selection

15

L.M.


1
LORD, on the throne Thy love's the same
As once upon Thy cross of shame;
In lowliness Thou cam'st to die,
Thou livest now for us on high.
2
We see Thee there, the Lamb once slain;
Thy loss was our eternal gain;
We see Thee crowned with glory now,
No shade on Thy victorious brow.
3
The darkness shadowed Calv'ry's tree,
But now Thine unveiled face we see;
Praise be to God for that blest word,
That "Thou remainest," blessèd Lord!
4
Yes! "Thou remainest": sea and land,
E'en heav'n, shall pass, but Thou shalt stand;
Undimmed Thy radiancy appears,
Changeless though all the changing years.

Mrs. G. Helyar
