Have You Not Known, Have You Not Heard

  1. Have you not known, have you not heard
    that firm remains on high
    the everlasting throne of him
    who formed the earth and sky?

  2. Are you afraid his pow’r shall fail
    when comes thine evil day?
    And can an all-creating arm
    grow weary or decay?

  3. Supreme in wisdom as in pow’r
    the Rock of Ages stands,
    though him you cannot see, nor trace
    the working of his hands.

  4. He gives the conquest to the weak,
    supports the fainting heart;
    and courage in the evil hour
    his heav’nly aids impart.

  5. Mere human pow’r shall fast decay,
    and youthful vigor cease;
    but they who wait upon the Lord
    in strength shall still increase.

  6. They with unwearied feet shall tread
    the path of life divine;
    with growing ardor onward move,
    with growing brightness shine.

  7. On eagles’ wings they mount, they soar–
    their wings are faith and love–
    till, past the cloudy regions here,
    they rise to heav’n above.
