Steadfast and True

But he was pierced for our transgressions, 
he was crushed for our iniquities; 
the punishment that brought us peace was on him, 
and by his wounds we are healed.

No matter what we think or feel
Or dare to say or do
The everlasting Word of God
Abides, steadfast and true

No matter what circumstance grants
Be it joy or dismay
The Word of God is not by chance
But is man’s hope and stay

The Word of God withstands Time’s test
Through ever-pressing tides
No matter what may come to pass
The Word of God abides

...then when we turn each sacred page
And look on He who died
Faith rests assured in spite of age
And hope is satisfied 

The Word of God is like a spring
Of Living Water poured
And as the thirsty come to drink
Their courage is restored 

Then sing; let earth ring with the joy
That God alone can give
Nothing and no one can destroy
His Words whereby we live

Isaiah 51:6
"Lift up your eyes to the sky,
Then look to the earth beneath;
For the sky will vanish like smoke,
And the earth will wear out like a garment
And its inhabitants will die in like manner;
But My salvation will be forever,
And My righteousness will not wane.

 Heaven and earth will pass away,
but my words will never pass away.
