Forever Settled in the Heavens

Full Text

1 Forever settled in the heavens,
Thy Word, O Lord, shall firmly stand;

The earth abides at thy command.

2 Thy word and works unmoved remain,
Thine every purpose to fulfill;
All things are thine and thee obey,
And all as servants wait thy will.

O save me, Lord, for I am thine.

4 The wicked would destroy my soul,
But in thy truth is refuge sure;
Exceeding broad is thy command,
And in perfection shall endure.

Trinity Hymnal, 1990
