We Read In The Dear Old Chapters


We read in the dear old chapters,
In times when weary grown,
Of the love that never faileth
To find and bless its own;
And sweet are the words with comfort,
As through this land we go,
The love that has failed us never,
Will fail us not below.

Refrain:
And sweet are the words with comfort,
As thro’ this land we go,
The love that has failed us never,
Will fail us not below.

No matter what ills betide us
Here in this lower land,
We can turn from the ills that vex,
And reach the Savior’s hand;
We can lean on the love unfailing,
Like an arm that is strong and true,
And see it is sure and steadfast
The whole long journey through. [Refrain]

O love, thou art like a fountain,
The summers can not dry;
Thou comest to hearts aweary,
Like rain from a tender sky;
Refreshed by the gentle shower,
All trust fully we say;
The love that has failed us never,
Will follow us all the way. [Refrain]
