How good is the God we adore,
 
Our faithful, unchangeable Friend,
 
Whose love is as great as His power,
 
And knows neither measure nor end!
Psalm 34:8; Psalm 145:9; Malachi 3:6; Ephesians 3:18-19

'Tis Jesus, the First and the Last,
 
Whose Spirit shall guide us safe home;
 
We'll praise Him for all that is past,
 
And trust Him for all that's to come.
