The cross stands firm - The same for ever
(Horatius Bonar/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)

The same for ever.

1. The cross stands firm; no blast of time,
no hurricane of earth's rude clime,
    can shake its heavenly steadfastness,
    or lessen its high power to bless.
                            I look and live! (PDF - Midi)

2. The tidings from that tree of love
are still God's message from above,
    telling, each hour, of cleansing blood,
    and pointing to the upward road.
                            I hear and live!

3. Still does the Christ his grace reveal,
his well of living joy unseal;
    still telling of his love and light,
    his meekness, majesty, and might.
                            I come and live!

4. Still waves life's tree its glorious wealth,
laden with everlasting health;
    with fruit and leaf divinely fair,
    and immortality still there.
                            I eat and live!

5. Still from the rock the waters burst
to quench the weary spirit's thirst;
    who drinketh once will drink again,
    who drinketh shall not drink in vain.
                            I drink and live!

Horatius Bonar, Hymns of Faith and Hope III, 1878, 20.
