Hymn/Song Information

Unchanging God hear from eternal Heaven We plead




Unchanging God,
hear from eternal Heav’n:
We plead Thy gifts of grace,
forever given,
Thy call, without repentance,
calling still,
The sure election of
Thy sovereign will.


Out of our faith in Thee,
Who canst not lie,
Out of our heart’s desire,
goes up our cry,
From hope’s sweet vision
of the thing to be,
From love to those who
still are loved by Thee.


Bring Thy belovèd back,
Thine Israel,
Thine own elect
who from Thy favor fell,
But not from Thine election!
O forgive,
Speak but the word,
and lo! the dead shall live.


Father of mercies!
these the long astray,
These in soul blindness
now the far away,
These are not aliens,
but Thy sons of yore,
Oh, by Thy Fatherhood,
restore, restore!


Breathe upon Thy Church,
that it may greet the day;
Stir up her will to toil,
and teach, and pray,
Till Zionward again salvation come,
And all her outcast children
are at home.


Triune Jehovah,
Thine the grace and power,
Thine all the work,
its past, its future hour,
O Thou, Who failest not,
Thy gifts fulfill,
And crown the calling
of Thy changeless will.
