006: Eternal God, unchanging

- Person and praise

Add to Powerpoint Creator

Tunes:Alford, 245
Meter:7.6.7.6.D. Iambic

1.
Eternal God, unchanging
Through all the changing years,
Whose hands all things created,
Who holds the countless stars;
Enthroned in heavenly glory,
Yet not a God afar;
Thou deignest to have dwelling
Here where thy people are.

2.
Forbid that man's achievements
Should cause our faith to wane,
Or seek in human wisdom
Our spirit to sustain;
Lord, surely thou art shaping
All things to thy design,
And born of this conviction
Is faith to match our time.

3.
And in a world divided
By selfishness and guile,
When truth is on the scaffold
And faith is standing trial,
Grant us, by inward knowledge
No learning can bestow,
A faith that answers firmly:
These things, these things I know.

4.
Though men have wrought confusion
Thy hand still holds the plan,
And thou, at length, decideth
The destiny of man;
Dominions rise and perish,
The mighty have their day,
But still thy word abideth,
It shall not pass away.


Albert Ernest Dalziel (1892-1974)
