Upon The Word I Rest


Upon the Word I rest,
Each pilgrim day;
This golden staff is best
For all the way.
What Jesus Christ hath spoken
Cannot be broken!
Cannot be broken!

Upon the Word I rest,
So strong, so sure;
So full of comfort blest,
So sweet, so pure!
The charter of salvation,
Faith’s broad foundation,
Faith’s broad foundation.

Upon the Word I stand!
That cannot die!
Christ seals it in my hand,
He cannot lie!
The Word that faileth never!
Abiding Ever!
Abiding Ever!
