1. Faithful and true, the man divine
On every promise stamps Amen.
Nor e'er shall fail a single line,
Engraved by love's eternal pen.

 

2. “Let man be saved,” the Father said:
“So be it!” Jesus, Jesus cried:
Nay more, the Savior bowed his head:
That man might live, Christ Jesus died.

 

3. Amen of God, Amen of man!
Beginning! Author! final End!
High praise await salvation's plan,
There one Amen for all is penned.
