“All flesh is as grass,
And all the glory of man as the flower of the grass.
The grass withers,
And its flower falls away,
But the word of the Lord endures forever.”
Now this is the word which by the gospel was preached to you.
Hymn: TLH 290, st. 1,3,4 :
We Have a Sure Prophetic Word
1. We have a sure prophetic Word
By inspiration of the Lord;
And though assailed on every hand,
Jehovah’s Word shall ever stand.
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.
