Hymn/Song Information

For ever and for ever Lord unchanged




For ever, and for ever, Lord,
unchanged thou dost remain:
Thy word established in the heav'ns
does all their orbs sustain.


Through circling ages, Lord, thy truth
immovable shall stand,
As doth the earth, which thou uphold'st
by thy Almighty hand.


All things the course by thee ordained
e'en to this day fulfil;
They are the faithful subjects all,
and servants of thy will.


Unless thy sacred law had been
my comfort and delight,
I must have fainted and expired
in dark affliction's night.


Thy precepts therefore from my thoughts
shall never, Lord, depart;
For thou by them hast to new life
restored my dying heart.


As I am thine, entirely thine,
protect me, Lord, from harm;
Who have thy precepts sought to know,
and carefully perform.


The wicked have their ambush laid
my guiltless life to take;
But in the midst of danger I
thy word my study make.


I've seen an end of what we call
perfection here below:
But thy commandments, like thyself,
no change or period know.
