|Text:||We Have A Sure, Prophetic Word|
1 We have a sure, prophetic Word,
By inspiration of the Lord;
And tho' assailed on ev'ry hand,
Jehovah's Word shall ever stand.
2 By pow'rs of empire banned and burned,
By pagan pride rejected, spurned,
The Word still stands the Christian's trust
While haughty empires lie in dust.
3 Lo, what the Word in times of old
Of future days and deeds foretold,
Is all fulfilled, while ages roll,
As traced on that prophetic scroll.
4 Abiding, steadfast, firm, and sure,
The statutes of our God endure:
Blest he who trusts this steadfast Word;
His anchor holds in Christ, the Lord.
