God's Faithfulness and Truth

Ye humble saints, proclaim abroad

Author: John Needham
Published in 28 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Ye humble saints proclaim abroad
The honours of a faithful God,
How just and true area all his ways,
How much above your highest praise.

2 The words his sacred lips declare
Of his own mind the image bear;
What should him tempt, from frailty free,
Blest in his self-sufficiency?

3 He will not his great self deny:
A God all truth can never lie:
As well might he his being quit,
As breaks his oath, or word forget.

4 Let frighten'd rivers change their course,
Or backward hasten to their source;
Swift thro' the air let rocks be hurl'd,
And mountains like the chaff be whirl'd.

5 Let sun and stars forget to rise,
Or quit their stations in the skies;
Let heav'n and earth both pass away,
Eternal truth shall ne'er decay.

6 True to his word, God gave his Son,
To die for crimes which men had done;
Blest pledge! He never will revoke
A single promise he has spoke.

As the result, Needham and a number of his friends removed to a Baptist meetinghouse in Callowhill Street, where a Mr. Foot was pastor. For a time the two societies used the same builing at different hours, but in 1755 they were united, with Mr. Needham and Mr. Foot as co-pa… Go to person page >
