+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Lord, Thy word abideth,

And our footsteps guideth;

Who its truth believeth

Light and joy receiveth.

+++++

When our foes are near us,

Then Thy word doth cheer us,

Word of consolation,

Message of salvation.

+++++

When the storms are o’er us,

And dark clouds before us,

Then its light directeth,

And our way protecteth.

+++++

Who can tell the pleasure,

Who recount the treasure,

By Thy word imparted

To the simple-hearted?

+++++

Word of mercy, giving

Succour to the living;

Word of life, supplying

Comfort to the dying!

+++++

O that we, discerning

Its most holy learning,

Lord, may love and fear Thee,

Evermore be near Thee!
