Original text and translations
5. "Lo, I am with you, saith the Lord,
"My church shall safe abide.
For I will ne'er forsake my own,
Whose souls in Me confide."
6. Through every scene of life and death,
This* promise is our trust:
And this shall be our children's song,
When we are cold** in dust.
(*. Holden has His. **. Holden has laid.)
