O Lord and Savior, we recline
on that eternal love of Thine;
Thou art our rest, and Thou alone
remainest when all else is gone.
Yes!Thou remainest:sea and land
e’en Heav’n shall pass, but Thou shalt stand;
undimmed, Thy radiancy appears,
changeless thro’ all the changing years.
Lord, on the throne Thy love’s the same
as once upon Thy cross of shame;
in lowliness Thou cam’st to die,
Thou livest now for us on high.
We see Thee there, the Lamb once slain;
Thy loss was our eternal gain;
we see Thee crowned with glory now,
no shade on Thy victorious brow.
The shadow dwelt on Calv’ry’s tree,
and now Thine unveiled face we see;
praise be to God for that blest word,
thatThou remainest,blessèd Lord.
Mrs. Gertrude Helyar, 1891
