1. We sigh for human love, from which
A whim or chance may sever,
And leave unsought the love of God,
Tho' God's love lasts forever.
2. We seek earth's peace in things that pass
Like foam upon the river,
While steadfast as the stars on high,
God's peace abides forever.
3. Man's help, for which we long, gives way,
As trees in stormwinds quiver,
But mightier than all human need
God's help remains forever.
4. Turn unto Thee our wav'ring hearts,
O Thou who failest never;
Give us Thy love and Thy great peace,
And be our Help forever!
