1 We sigh for human love, from which
A whim or chance may sever,
And leave unsought the love of God,
Tho' God's love lasts forever.
2 We seek earth's peace in things that pass
Like foam upon the river,
While steadfast as the stars on high,
God's peaxe abides forever.
3 Man's help, for which we long, gives way,
As trees in storm-winds quiver,
But mightier than all human need
God's help remains forever.
4 Turn unto Thee our wav'ring hearts,
O Thou who failest never;
Give us Thy love and Thy great peace,
And be our Help forever!
