Timeless love! We sing the story


Timeless love! We sing the story,
praise his wonders, tell his worth;
love more fair than heaven's glory,
love more firm than ancient earth!
Tell his faithfulness abroad:
who is like him? Praise the Lord!

By his faithfulness surrounded,
north and south his hand proclaim;
earth and heaven formed and founded,
skies and seas declare his Name!
Wind and storm obey his word:
who is like him? Praise the Lord!

Truth and righteousness enthrone him,
just and equal are his ways;
more than happy, those who own him,
more than joy, their songs of praise!
Sun and Shield and great Reward:
who is like him? Praise the Lord!
