Representative Text

OFT our trust has known betrayal,
Oft our hopes were vain,
But there’s one in every trial
Constant will remain.

Refrain:
Yesterday, today, for ever,
Jesus is the same;
We may change, but Jesus never;
Glory to his name!

2 Like a rock ‘midst dashing billows
Holding fast its place,
Jesus is in all life’s sorrows
When we trust his grace.

3 Do your duty, shirk it never,
Leave the rest with God;
Stand your ground, today, forever;
Victory through the blood!
