30. Praise to the Living God

1cPraise to the living God,
All praised be that Name,
Who was, and is, and is to be,
Is still the same;
The one eternal God,
Before what now appears,
The First, the Last, beyond all thought
Through timeless years.

2 God's Spirit floweth free,
High surging where it will --
In prophet's word it spoke of old --
Is speaking still.
Established is God's law,
And changeless it shall stand,
Deep writ upon the human heart,
On sea or land.

3 God has eternal life
Implanted in the soul.
God's love shall be our strength and stay,
While ages roll.
Praise to the living God!
All praised be God's name,
Who was and is, and is to be,
Is still the same.
