Hymn/Song Information

No change of time shall ever shock my firm




No change of times shall ever shock
my firm affection, Lord, to thee;
For thou hast always been my rock,
a fortress and defense to me.


Thou my deliv'rer art, my:God,
my trust is in thy mighty pow'r:
Thou art my shield from foes abroad,
at home my safeguard and my tow'r.


Thou to the just shalt justice show;
The pure thy purity shall see:
Such as perversely choose to go,
Shall meet with due returns from thee.


Then who deserves to be adored;
But God, on whom my hopes depend?
Or who, except the mighty Lord,
Can with resistless power defend?


To thee will I address my pray'r,
(to whom all praise we justly owe;)
So shall I, by thy watchful care,
be guarded from my treach'rous foe.


By floods of wicked men distressed,
with deadly sorrows compassed round;
With dire infernal pangs oppressed,
in death's unwieldy fetters bound.


To heav'n I made my mournful pray'r,
to God addressed my humble moan;
Who graciously inclined his ear,
and heard me from his lofty throne.

No change of times shall ever shock
my firm affection, Lord, to thee;
For thou hast always been a rock,
a fortress and defense to me.


To thee I will address my pray'r,
To whom all praise we justly owe;
So shall I, by thy watchful care,
Be guarded from my treach'rous foe.
