Hymn/Song Information

I hear the words of love I gaze upon




I hear the words of love,
I gaze upon the blood,
I see the mighty Sacrifice,
And I have peace with God.


‘Tis everlasting peace!
Sure as Jehovah’s name;
‘Tis stable as His steadfast throne,
For evermore the same.


The clouds may go and come,
And storms may sweep my sky—
This blood-sealed friendship
changes not:
The cross is ever nigh.


My love is oft times low,
My joy still ebbs and flows;
But peace with Him
remains the same—
No change Jehovah knows.


I change, he changes not,
The Christ can never die;
His love, not mine,
the resting-place,
His truth, not mine, the tie.


The Cross still stands unchanged,
Though heaven is now His home;
The mighty stone is rolled away,
But yonder is His tomb!


And yonder is my peace,
The grace of all my woes!
I know the Son of God has come,
I know He died and rose.


I know He liveth now
At God’s right hand above;
I know the throne on which He sits,
I know His truth and love!
