Have you not known, have you not heard ?
Have you not been told from the beginning ?
Have you not understood from the Earth's foundation ?
Is this why you keep sinning ?

Have you not known, have you not heard ?
That the Everlasting God, the Lord,
The Creator of the ends of the Earth -
Faints not, is not weary nor bored ?

But they that wait, yes wait on the Lord
Exchange their strength for His own
They mount up with wings as of eagles;
And they fly direct to God's throne !

They shall run and not be weary;
They shall walk and never faint
Not to all men, shall this power be
But only to God's saint !

Isaiah 40:21,28,31
