Conformed to His Counsel

"Thy Word is true from the beginning: and every one of Thy righteous judgments endureth for ever" (Psalm 119:160).  "Hear counsel, and receive instruction, that thou mayest be wise in thy latter end…. The counsel of the LORD, that shall stand" (Proverbs 19:20,21).  "The grass withereth, the flower fadeth: but the Word of our God shall stand for ever" (Isaiah 40:8).  "Be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God" (Romans 12:2). 

God's Word is true from the beginning,
And all His truth endures forever. 
His counsel keeps our heart from sinning,
Instructing us in each endeavor.

The counsel of the Lord shall stand
When every other plan shall fail. 
As we obey our Lord's command,
We shall be strengthened to prevail. 

The grass shall wither; flowers fade.
The Word of God is our foundation
Which has by Jesus Christ been laid,
The Architect of our salvation.

Your counsel, Lord, is all we need
To be conformed to what is true
As You have made us free indeed,
Transforming us to be like You.
