We Have a Sure Prophetic Word

Melody - "Wo Gott zum Haus", from the Geistliche Lieder, Wittenberg, 1535; Seq. by Richard Jordan

Emanuel Cronenwett, 1880

We have a sure prophetic Word
By inspiration of the Lord;
And though assailed on every hand,
Jehovah's Word shall ever stand.

2. By powers of empire banned and burned,
By pagan pride rejected, spurned,
The Word still stands the Christian's trust
While haughty empires lie in dust.

3. Lo, what the Word in times of old
Of future days and deeds foretold
Is all fulfilled while ages roll,
As traced on the prophetic scroll.

4. Abiding, steadfast, firm, and sure,
The teachings of the Word endure.
Blest he who trusts this steadfast Word;
His anchor holds in Christ, the Lord.
