Forever, O Lord, Thy Word is settled in Heaven.@Psalm 119:89

From The Psalter (Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania: United Presbyterian Board of Publication, 1912), number 332.

Duke Street attributed to John Hatton, 1793 (🔊 pdf nwc).

Forever settled in the heav’ns,
Thy Word, O Lord, shall firmly stand;
Thy faithfulness shall never fail;
The earth abides at Thy command.

Thy Word and works unmoved remain,
Thine every purpose to fulfill;
All things are Thine and Thee obey,
And all as servants wait Thy will.

I should have perished in my woe
Had not I loved Thy law divine;
That law I never can forget;
O save me, Lord, for I am Thine.

The wicked would destroy my soul,
But in Thy truth is refuge sure;
Exceeding broad is Thy command,
And in perfection shall endure.
