Christ My Song - 1054
O thou, who from Eternity - The Unchanging One
(Hannah K. Burlingham/Johannes Thomas Rüegg)
The Unchanging One.
"I am the Lord, I change not; therefore ye sons of Jacob are not consumed." (Malachi 3,6)
1. O thou, who from Eternity
art the unchanging God,
give us a child-like trust in thee,
reliance on thy word;
let us on Christ, our Rock divine,
constant, unshaken stand,
grasping each priceless truth of thine
with firm unfaltering hand. PDF - Midi
2. Teach us in conscious weakness, Lord,
on thee alone to lean;
let us rejoice, when ’gainst our foes
our powerlessness is seen;
then is our time to rest on thee,
(e’en in the darkest hour):
glory to thee, thou canst not fail
to prove thy love and power.
3. Boundless resources, Lord, are ours;
in thee we’re rich indeed:
"God of all grace," whose wondrous name
suits every time of need.
This precious story of thy grace
let us more simply hear;
more steadfast run the allotted race,
free from all care and fear.
4. Our cause is thine, we wait on thee,
nor can we wait in vain:
no! we shall more than conquerors be,
a palm of victory gain!
For in the Name thou holdest dear,
our confidence we rest;
therefore our cry has reached thine ear;
granted is our request.
5. Our Father! since we know thy Name,
we put our trust in thee:
thou art, and hast been, still the same,
and wilt for ever be.
O guide our footsteps day by day;
be thou our hearts’ delight:
till Jesus calls us hence away,
to walk with him in white.
