102B. Thou, O Lord, Art God Alone

1 Thou, O Lord, art God alone;
everlasting is thy throne;
through the ages men shall sing
praise to heav'n's eternal King.
Thou, enthroned above the skies,
wilt for Zion's help arise;
let thy grace to her appear,
for the promised time is near.

2 If with love compassionate
we, thy servants, mourn her state,
wilt not thou, O gracious Lord,
help in Zion's need afford?
Lord, thy glory shall appear,
kings and nations then shall fear;
and thy name shall be adored
when thy Zion is restored.

3 This all ages shall record
for the glory of the Lord;
thou dost hear the humble prayer,
for the helpless thou dost care.
Thou eternal art, and great,
heav'n and earth thou didst create,
heav'n and earth shall pass away,
changeless thou shall live for aye.

4 As one lays a garment by,
thou wilt change the starry sky
like a vesture worn and old;
but thy years shall ne'er be told.
Thou wilt make thy servants' race
ever live before thy face,
and forever at thy side
children's children shall abide.
