Lord, Thy Word Abideth


Lord,
Thy
Word
abideth,
And
our
footsteps
guideth;
Who
its
truth
believeth
Light
and
joy
receiveth.
When
our
foes
are
near
us,
Then
Thy
Word
doth
cheer
us,
Word
of
consolation,
Message
of
salvation.
When
the
storms
are
o’er
us,
And
dark
clouds
before
us,
Then
its
light
directeth,
And
our
way
protecteth.Who
can
tell
the
pleasure,
Who
recount
the
treasure,
By Thy
Word
imparted
To the
simple
hearted?
Word
of
mercy,
giving
Succor
to the
living;
Word
of
life,
supplying
Comfort
to the
dying!O
that
we,
discerning,
Its
most
holy
learning,
Lord,
may
love
and
fear
Thee,
Evermore
be
near
Thee!
