1
O LORD, Thou art, and wast, and art to come,
The great I AM, to Thee be honour, praise!
The First and Last, the Living One who died,
Behold Thou livest now to endless days.
2
Now Thou appearest to th' assemblies here,
Their works of faith and love Thou dost recall.
We hear Thy voice afresh so loud and clear,
O Jesus Lord, and at Thy feet we fall.
3
Holy and True amidst departure sore,
Thy faithful word reviewing all our ways,
Thy feet like brass, Thy voice like waters deep,
Our hearts laid bare before Thy searching gaze.
4
Thy precious words to him that overcomes
Stir fresh desires to serve and honour Thee,
To keep Thy word, and not deny Thy Name,
Till Thou shalt come and we shall with Thee be.

E.G. Green
