Faber: Thou hadst no youth, great God

Wednesday, February 15, 2012
    Commemoration of Thomas Bray, Priest, Founder of SPCK, 1730
You, O LORD, reign forever;
    your throne endures from generation to generation.
    —Lamentations 5:19 (NIV)
            Thou hadst no youth, great God,
        An Unbeginning End Thou art;
            Thy glory in itself abode,
        And still abides in its own tranquil heart:
    No age can heap its outward years on Thee:
Dear God! Thou art Thyself Thine own eternity!
    ... Frederick William Faber (1814-1863), Hymns, New York: E. P. Dutton, 1877, p. 18-19 (see the book)
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You reign supreme forever.
