I HEAR the words of love,

I gaze upon the blood,

I see the mighty sacrifice

And I have peace with God.


’Tis everlasting peace!

Sure as Jehovah’s Name;

’Tis stable as His steadfast throne,

Forevermore the same.


The clouds may come and go,

And storms may sweep my sky

This blood-sealed friendship changes not:

The cross is ever nigh.


My love is oft-times low,

My joy still ebbs and flows;

But peace with Him remains the same

No change Jehovah knows.


I change, He changes not,

The Christ can never die;

His love, not mine, the resting place,

His truth, not mine the tie.
