Thou, O Lord, remainest for ever; Thy throne from generation to generation. Lamentations 5:19
Words: Mrs. E. Helyer, 1891,
Written after the death of her husband, after four years of marriage.
If you know Helyer’s full name, or where to get a good photo of her or Baker, would you ?
O Lord and Savior, we recline
On that eternal love of Thine;
Thou art our rest, and Thou alone
Remainest when all else is gone.
Thou remainest: sea and land
E’en Heav’n shall pass, but Thou shalt stand;
Undimmed, Thy radiancy appears,
Changeless thro’ all the changing years.
Lord, on the throne Thy love’s the same
As once upon Thy cross of shame;
In lowliness Thou cam’st to die,
Thou livest now for us on high.
We see Thee there, the Lamb once slain;
Thy loss was our eternal gain;
We see Thee crowned with glory now,
No shade on Thy victorious brow.
The shadow dwelt on Calv’ry’s tree,
And now Thine unveiled face we see;
Praise be to God for that blest word,
Thou remainest, blessèd Lord.
