Truth eternal, truth divine

Truth eternal, truth divine

Author: Parley Parker Pratt
Tune: MOORE (Schreiner)
Published in 3 hymnals

Representative Text

1. Truth eternal, truth divine,
In thine ancient fulness shine!
Burst the fetters of the mind
From the millions of mankind!

2. Truth again restored to earth,
Opened with a prophet’s birth.
Priests of heaven’s royal line
Bear the keys of truth divine!

3. Truth shall triumph as the light
Chases far the misty night.
Endless ages own its sway,
Clad in everlasting day.
