ON that eternal love of Thine,
O Lord and Saviour, we recline;
Thou art our rest, and Thou alone
Remainest when all else is gone.
Yes! "THOU REMAINEST"; sea and land,
E'en heaven shall pass, but Thou shalt stand;
Undimmed Thy radiancy appears,
Changeless through all the changing years.
Lord, on the throne Thy love's the same,
As once upon Thy cross of shame;
Not only didst Thou come to die,
Thou livest still for us on high.
We see Thee there, the Lamb once slain,
Thy loss was our eternal gain;
We see Thee crowned with glory now -
No shade on Thy victorious brow.
The shadow dwelt on Calvary's tree,
And now Thine unveiled face we see;
Praise be to God for that blest word,
That "THOU REMAINEST," Blessed Lord. G. H.
