562. Truth Divine

1 Truth divine, by angels spoken,
Clothed in strains of music grand;
Like a chain with links unbroken,
Like a rock on which we stand.

Refrain:
Rock of truth, on thee abiding,
Thus protected we shall be,
In Jehovah’s presence hiding
Unto all eternity.

2 Truth divine, we own its Author,
Maker of eternal things,
Praise to Him we gladly offer
For the hope and grace it brings. [Refrain]

3 We Thy counsel, Lord, have taken,
Creeds are crumbling ’neath our feet:
Here we stand, by sin unshaken,
Here we reign in grace complete. [Refrain]

4 God of love, we meekly pray Thee,
Light and life to us impart:
Uncondemned, we will obey Thee,
Dwell Thou ever in our heart. [Refrain]
