Words: Isaac Watts Music: "Hermon" by Lowell Mason Have you not known, have you not heard That firm remains on high The everlasting throne of Him Who formed the earth and sky? Are you afraid his power shall fail When comes your evil day? And can an all creating arm Grow weary or decay? Supreme in wisdom as in power The Rock of Ages stands, Though Him you cannot see, nor trace The working of His hands. He gives the conquest to the weak, Supports the fainting heart; And courage in the evil hour His heavenly aids impart. Mere human power shall fast decay, And youthful vigor cease; But they who wait upon the Lord In strength shall still increase. They with unwearied feet shall tread The path of life divine; With growing ardor onward move, With growing brightness shine. On eagles' wings they mount, they soar, Their wings are faith and love; 'Til, past the cloudy regions here, They rise to Heav'n above.
