Full Text

1 When the earth shall cease to be,
And the heavens pass away,
The unchanging word of God we’ll see
Just as it is today.

On the word of God I calmly rest,
With a sweet assurance in my breast;
For I know it is His holy will,
Each promise to fulfill.

2 Since the morn when time began,
Hath His word ceased to prevail?
Is the God of heaven weak as man?
Or can His promise fail? [Refrain]

3 Hath a mortal yet been found
Who hath trusted Him in vain?
Search the whole broad space of earth around,
And search it once again. [Refrain]

4 Trusting Him I’m not afraid,
For He careth still for me;
And for me the promise sure was made
And sealed on Calvary. [Refrain]

5 Oh, what peace and calm content!
Oh, what love and joy divine,
While I trust Thy changeless word, are blent
Within this heart of mine. [Refrain]
