I hear the words of love, I gaze upon the blood, I see the mighty sacrifice, And I have peace with God.2. ’Tis everlasting peace, Sure as Jehovah’s name; ’Tis stable as His steadfast throne, Forevermore the same.3. The clouds may go and come, And storms may sweep my sky; This bloodbought friendship changes not, The cross is ever nigh.4. My love is ofttimes low, My joy still ebbs and flows; But peace with Him remains the same; No change Jehovah knows.5. I change— He changes not; The Christ can never die; His love, not mine, the resting place; His truth, not mine, the tie.
