84. We Hear the Words of Love

S.M.
by H. Bonar
1
We hear the words of love,
 
We gaze upon the blood,
 
We see the mighty sacrifice,
 
And we have peace with God.
John 10:11; John 19:34; Hebrews 10:12; Romans 5:1
2
'Tis everlasting peace!
 
Sure as Jehovah's name;
 
'Tis stable as His steadfast throne,
 
Forevermore the same.
2 Thessalonians 3:16; Exodus 3:14-15; Hebrews 1:8; Hebrews 1:12
3
Our love is ofttimes low,
 
Our joy still ebbs and flows;
 
But peace with Him remains the same,
 
No change Jehovah knows.
Malachi 3:6
4
We change—He changes not;
 
Our Christ can never die:
 
His love, not ours, the resting-place,
 
We on His truth rely.
Malachi 3:6; Acts 13:34-37; 1 John 4:19
5
The cross still stands unchanged,
 
Though heaven is now His home;
 
The mighty stone is rolled away,
 
But yonder is His tomb!
Luke 24:2-3
6
And yonder is our peace,
 
The grave of all our woes;
 
We know the Son of God has come,
 
We know He died and rose.
1 John 4:2; 1 Corinthians 15:3-4
7
We know He liveth now
 
At God's right hand above;
 
We know the throne on which He sits,
 
We know His truth and love!
Revelation 1:18; Hebrews 1:3; Hebrews 4:16
