Hymn/Song Information

Unchanging God who livest




Unchanging God, who livest
enthroned in realms on high,
to men the power thou givest
thy name to magnify.
We raise the bells for ringing
with ready mind and will,
and come before thee, bringing
our hearts, our strength, our skill.


We call, from tower and steeple,
upon the day of days,
all faithful Christian people
to worship, prayer, and praise;
we ring with joyous gladness
when man and wife are blessed;
we peal in muffled sadness
for loved ones laid to rest.


By union free and willing
the work of God is done;
our Master's prayer fulfilling,
we would in him be one:
one, as the Church our Mother
would have her children stand,
befriending one another,
a strong and steadfast band.


Our lives, like bells, while changing,
an ordered course pursue;
through joys and sorrows ranging,
may all those lives ring true.
May we, through Christ forgiven,
our faults and failures past,
attain our place in heaven,
called home to rest at last.
