“I am The Lord, and I Change Not.”Don Fortner

(Tune: #400 — Jesus, and Shall it Ever Be? — LM)

 

1.    Blest sons of Jacob, chosen race,

Our God’s the God of sovereign grace!

He never alters His designs,

And will not, cannot change His mind.

 

2.    Though rocks dissolve and hills remove,

With sun, and moon, and stars above,

Though often we unfaithful prove,

He loves us with unchanging love!

 

3.    Though sorrows come and comfort goes,

Our God no variation knows!

Though full of sin, we blush with shame,

His mercies sure remain the same!

 

4.    “I am the Lord, and I change not.” —

This word from God we must not doubt.

His promise He will never break. —

The honor of His name’s at stake!

 

5.    Rejoice! Rejoice! Be of good cheer,

Till temporal things all disappear!

And then, in heaven’s vast domains,

We’ll praise our God, Who cannot change!
