The moon and stars shall lose their light.
The sun shall sink in endless night;
Both heav’n and earth shall pass away;
The works of nature all decay:
But they that in the Lord confide,
And shelter in His wounded side:
Shall see the danger overpast—
Stand every storm, and live at last.
What Christ has said must be fulfilled—
On this firm rock believers build;
His word shall stand, His truth prevail,
And not one jot or tittle fail.
Believe on Me, and banish fear;
Cease from your own works, bad or good,
And wash your garments in My blood.
