I Hear the Words of Love

Congregational singing
Capitol Hill Baptist Church – Washington, D.C.
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 come and go,
And storms may sweep my sky;
This blood-sealed friendship changes not,
The cross is ever nigh.
My love is oftimes 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.
