Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Speed on Thy truth, Eternal One

Speed on Thy truth, Eternal One

Representative Text

1 Speed on Thy truth, Eternal One,
Thy holy law proclaim,
Till ev'ry land beneath the sun,
Has heard Jehovah's name.
We own, O Lord, Thy sov'reign pow'r,
And bow before Thy throne,
To sing Thy glories in this hour,
Immortal God alone.

2 Thy truth shall stand, unchanging God,
Long as the ages roll,
Tho' trampled oft where sin has trod,
And error chained the soul.
Arise and shine, ye chosen band,
Ye patient scattered few;
No work so high, so deep, so grand,
Has e'er been given you.

3 We near that hour of calm surcease,
From sorrow, death, and sin,
That brings the weary one release,
And ushers heaven in.
Awake, arise, arise and shine;
Proclaim His truth abroad;
It is thy Saviour's work and thine,
Thou messenger of God.

4 We sing Thy praise, eternal Lord,
Thy glorious truth proclaim;
Thy mandate is a shield and sword,
Thy word a living flame.
Long as the promised years shall roll
Long as eternity
We'll bow to Thy benign control,
And worship only Thee.
