Faithfulness of our Forerunner

"We have thought of Thy lovingkindness, O God… This God is our God forever and ever: He will be our Guide even unto death" (Psalm 48:9,14).  "From everlasting, from the beginning, or ever the earth was… My delights were with the sons of men" (Proverbs 8:23,31).  "It is of the LORD'S mercies that we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not… They are new every morning: great is Thy faithfulness" (Lamentations 3:22,23).  "We have as an anchor of the soul… within the veil… the Forerunner… even Jesus" (Hebrews 6:19,20). 

The lovingkindness of our Savior
Has overwhelmed our meditation   
As we have thought upon His favor
And what He did for our salvation! 

From everlasting, before time,
He set His heart upon us then. 
What heights we are allowed to climb
To see His love for sinful men! 

His great compassions never fail;
Each morning we have found them new.  
Our anchor holds within the veil
Where our Forerunner is in view. 

As our Forerunner, Lord, You ran
With faithfulness to save the lost. 
You have fulfilled salvation's plan;
You satisfied redemption's cost!
