Representative Text

1 No shadow of turning in Jesus!
No semblance of change or decay;
His truth still enlightens the ages,
His glory grows brighter each day.

Chorus:
No shadow of turning in Jesus!
Today and forever his love is the same;
Tho’ sin-billows roll,
His peace fills my soul;
No shadow of turning in Jesus!

2 No shadow of turning in Jesus!
His love for the sinner the same
As when on the Cross of Redemption
He bore for the sinner his shame. [Chorus]

3 No shadow of turning in Jesus!
The Master who stilled the wild sea
Will bring sweetest peace to the sinner,
Who cries, “Lord, have mercy on me.” [Chorus]

4 No shadow of turning in Jesus!
Tho’ highly exalted above,
He tenderly cares for his children
Who lean on his promise of love. [Chorus]
