1 Can truth divine fulfillment fail?
Sooner shall star-crowned nature die!
Truth is the very breath of God--
Part of his own eternity.

2 Earth's every pulse may cease to flow,
And every voice be heard no more;
The forest crumble on the mount--
The sea corrupt upon the shore;--

3 The moon's supply of light expire,
The sun itself grow dense with gloom,
And fairer systems, sphered afar,
Dissolving, own the common doom.

4 But long as stands Jehovah's throne,
Long as his being shall endure,
So long the truth his lips proclaim
Remains inviolably sure.
