The Truth IS


Progress can never altar timeless, fundamental facts
Truth is an Absolute in spite of years, ideas, acts
Ignorance, unbelief, brash negligence and apathy
Can never usurp or escape I AM’s Supremacy

The liar will distort the Truth; still, Truth can never change
Lord, pray we crave discernment where world-forces will estrange
The heart from Certain Knowledge and the Anchor from the Soul
The Word of God is Truth Immutable though ages roll

Ah, who can hide from He who forms and clothes the soul with dust?
And who can sever from one’s bearing, man’s immortal Must
I am the Way, the Truth, the Life’ guides us beyond this sod
Progress for all its boast cannot preempt the Word of God

The cleansing power of God’s Word will never disappear
His Truth is life’s kind comfort in a world darkened by fear
No sinner is too vile for Him, His Love and grace forgives
And saves, though mortal body dies, the soul that lives and lives

© Janet Martin

 Do not let kindness and truth leave you;
Bind them around your neck,
Write them on the tablet of your heart.
