CXCVII. Alpha and Omega

1 Hail, Alpha and Omega, hail!
Thou great beginning, glorious end!
From first to last, from last to first,
God, Father, Saviour, Brother, Friend.

2 No change of will, nor lapse of pow'r,
Shall alter or impede thy plan:
One grand, consistent, perfect whole
Is thine, thou head of ev'ry man.

3 Ere morning stars, creation sang,
Th' eternal purpose was complete;
Nor can the idle whirl of time,
Thy everlasting love defeat.
