1 Change and decay on all below
We see, as on thro’ life we go;
How blessed then for us to know
God will not change, God will not change.

Tho’ friends we love soon pass away,
And earthly hopes live but a day,
Our Saviour lives for aye and aye,
He will not change, He will not change.

2 On this strong rock we’ll ever stand,
“All other ground is sinking sand,”
Our Father’s love our life has plann’d,
God will not change, God will not change. [Chorus]

3 How safe when trusting in the Lord,
How sure believing His sweet word,
How happy hid with Christ in God,
God will not change, God will not change. [Chorus]
