Thy Everlasting Truth


Thy everlasting truth,
Father, thy ceaseless love,
sees all thy children’s wants, and knows
what best for each will prove.

Thou ev’rywhere hast sway,
and all things serve thy might;
thy ev’ry act pure blessing is,
thy path unsullied light.

Thou seest our weakness, Lord;
our hearts are known to thee;
O lift thou up the sinking hand,
confirm the feeble knee.

Let us in life, in death,
thy steadfast will declare,
and publish with our latest breath
thy love and guardian care.
