Isaiah 40:6–8 (Listen)
The Word of God Stands Forever
6 A voice says, “Cry!”
And I said,1 “What shall I cry?”
All flesh is grass,
and all its beauty2 is like the flower of the field.
7 The grass withers, the flower fades
when the breath of the LORD blows on it;
surely the people are grass.
8 The grass withers, the flower fades,
but the word of our God will stand forever.
Hymn: TLH 200, st. 1,8 :
I Know that my Redeemer Lives
1. I know that my Redeemer lives;
What comfort this sweet sentence gives!
He lives, He lives, who once was dead;
He lives, my ever-living Head.
8. He lives, all glory to His name!
He lives, my Jesus, still the same.
Oh, the sweet joy this sentence gives,
“I know that my Redeemer lives!”
