5054. O Lord and Savior, We Recline

1. 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.

2. Yes! 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.

3. 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.

4. 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.

5. The shadow dwelt on Calv’ry’s tree,
And now Thine unveiled face we see;
Praise be to God for that blest word,
That Thou remainest, blessèd Lord.
