Representative Text

1 He lives and loves, our Saviour King;
With joyful lips your tribute bring;
Repeat His praise, exalt His Name,
Whose grace and truth are till the same.

Refrain:
His mercy flows, an endless stream
To all eternity the same;
To all eternity, to all eternity,
To all eternity the same.

2 His hand is strong, His word endures,
His sacrifice our peace secures;
From sin and death He doth redeem,
His changeless love be all our theme. [Refrain]

3 Each day reveals His constant love,
With “mercies new” from heav’n above;
Through ages past His Word has stood;
Oh, taste and see that He is good. [Refrain]
