Unchangeable

Here shall no Trouble or Dismay

Author: James Reilly
Published in 5 hymnals

Representative Text

1 Here shall no trouble or dismay
Reach us, nor want, nor sin, nor shame,
For Christ to day and yesterday,
And to eternity's the same.

2 Here consummate in joy and peace,
We hail that wounded, bleeding heart,
Where, sav'd from sin, we'll never cease
To praise the Lamb our better part.

3 Now all things in one period turn;
Sin dare no more to show its head;
No more we want, nor sigh, nor mourn,
On ev'ry foe we conq'ring tread.

4 The end is come, God hath appear'd,
Assum'd our flesh, and blood, and bone;
The body in his love, prepar'd,
Is that, where Christ and we are one.

5 O death! where's now thy sting and curse?
Where's now thy boasted pow'r and might?
We feel no more the dread remorse,
Nor can thy terrors us affright.

6 Glory to our incarnate God!
We're sav'd in him, the work is done;
He leads us, by the Saviour's blood,
Up to the glories of his throne.
