84. We Hear the Words of Love

by H. Bonar
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
'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
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
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
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
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
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
“I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.” (John 10:11)
“But one of the soldiers with a spear pierced his side, and forthwith came there out blood and water.” (John 19:34)
