S.M.


1
WE hear the word of love,
We gaze upon the blood,
We see the mighty Sacrifice,
And we have peace with God.
2
'Tis everlasting peace,
Sure as Jehovah's Name;
'Tis stable as His steadfast throne,
For evermore the same.
3
Our love is oft-times low,
Our joy still ebbs and flows;
But peace with Him remains the same
No change Jehovah knows.
4
We change - He changes not,
Though changing years roll by;
His love, not ours, the resting-place,
We on His truth rely.
5
The cross stil stands unchanged,
Though heav'n is now His home;
The mighty stone is rolled away,
For He has left the tomb.
6
We know He liveth now
At God's right hand above;
We know the throne on which He sits,
We know His truth and love.

H. Bonar
