The truth we tell is the same today
as the truth made known of old;
for if truth is truth it is here to stay,
and so must again be told.
O, let it be said, Lord Jesus,
what we spoke of you was true.
And people want to be told the truth,
though they may not want to hear,
and may turn aside to the dreams of youth,
or may mock, despise, or jeer.
And who knows, one day they may see the Light,
and accept that truth they heard;
not changed by seeing a wondrous sight,
but by truth their hearts are stirred.
The word of truth is of Christ, the Lord;
of Christ, the Judge, the Lamb.
We must not add to his glorious Word, –
but the truth we must proclaim.
