59. Forever Settled in the Heavens

1 Forever settled in the heav'ns,
thy word, O Lord, shall firmly stand;
thy faithfulness shall never fail;
the earth abides at thy command.

2 Thy word and works unmoved remain,
thine ev'ry purpose to fulfil;
all things are thine and thee obey,
and all as servants wait thy will.

3 I should have perished in my woe
had not I loved thy law divine;
that law I never can forget;
O save me, Lord, for I am thine.

4 The wicked would destroy my soul,
but in thy truth is refuge sure;
exceeding broad is thy command,
and in perfection shall endure.
