142. Lord, Thy Word Abideth

1 Lord, thy Word abideth and our footsteps guideth;
who its truth believeth light and joy receiveth.
When our foes are near us, then thy Word doth cheer us;
word of consolation, message of salvation.

2 When the storms are o'er us, and dark clouds before us,
then its light directeth, and our way protecteth.
Who can tell the pleasure, who recount the treasure,
by thy Word imparted to the simple-hearted?

3 Word of mercy, giving succor to the living;
Word of life, supplying comfort to the dying!
O that we, discerning its most holy learning,
Lord, may love and fear thee, evermore be near thee.
