Hymn/Song Information

The highest and the holiest place Guards




The highest and the holiest place
Guards not the heart from sin;
The Church that safest seems without
May harbor foes within.


Thus in the small and chosen band,
Beloved above the rest,
One fell from his apostleship,
A traitor-soul unblest.


But not the great designs of God
Manís sins shall over throw;
Another witness to the truth
Forth to the lands shall go.


The soul that sinneth, it shall die;
Thy purpose shall not fail;
The word of grace no less shall sound,
The truth no less prevail.


Righteous, O Lord, are all Thy ways;
Long as the worlds endure,
From foes without and foes within,
Thy Church shall stand secure.
