Thirtieth Day – Loyal Responses – by Francis R. Havergal

Tried, Precious, Sure

‘The Same yesterday, and to-day, and for ever.’—Heb. xiii. 8.

‘A stone, a tried stone, a precious comer stone, a sure foundation.’—Isa. xxviii. 16.

I.
THROUGH the yesterday of ages, Jesus,
Thou hast been The Same;
Through our own life’s chequered pages,
Still the one dear changeless Name.
Well may we in Thee confide.
Faithful Saviour, proved and * tried ! *

II.
Joyfully we stand and witness
Thou art still to-day The Same;
In Thy perfect, glorious fitness,
Meeting every need and claim.
Chiefest of ten thousand Thou !
Saviour, O most * precious,’ now!

III.
Gazing down the far for ever,
Brighter glows the one sweet Name,
Steadfast radiance paling never,
Jesus, Jesus ! still The Same.
Evermore *Thou shalt endure
Our own Saviour, strong and ‘sure!’
