1. Forever settled in the heav’ns,
Thy word, O Lord, shall firmly stand;
Thy faithfulness shall never fail;
The earth abides at Thy command.
2. Thy word and works unmoved remain,
Thy every purpose to fulfill;
All things are Thine and Thee obey,
And all as servants wait Thy will.
3. I should have perished in my woe
Had not I loved Thy law divine;
That law I never can forget;
O save me, Lord, for I am Thine.
4. The wicked would destroy my soul,
But on Thy truth I muse with awe;
Imperfect I have found all else,
But boundless is Thy wondrous law.
