Psalm 89:2. First Part. C. M.
The faithfulness of God.
My never-ceasing songs shall show
The mercies of the Lord,
And make succeeding ages know
How faithful is his word.
The sacred truths his lips pronounce
Shall firm as heaven endure;
And if he speak a promise once,
Th’ eternal grace is sure.
How long the race of David held
The promis’d Jewish throne!
But there’s a nobler covenant seal’d
To David’s greater Son.
His seed for ever shall possess
A throne above the skies;
The meanest subject of his grace
Shall to that glory rise.
Lord God of hosts, thy wondrous ways
Are sung by saints above;
And saints on earth their honours raise
To thine unchanging love.
