Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.

Representative Text

1 There’s a wonderful peace in my heart ev’ry day,
For I’m trusting in Jesus each step of the way;
On His promise I rest as my strength and my stay,
For His love never knows any change.

Refrain:
His love never knows any change,
His love never knows any change,
Praise His wonderful name,
He is always the same,
For His love never knows any change

2 Tho’ the pathway be stony and steep where I tread,
By the strength of His grace I am constantly led;
There is nothing to harm me and nothing to dread,
For His love never knows any change. [Refrain]

3 When my heart is perplexed then He shows me the right;
He illumines my way with His radiant light;
There is nothing but sin hides His face from my sight,
For His love never knows any change. [Refrain]

4 I will follow His leading till life’s day is o’er,
For I know He will guide me to heaven’s glad shore,
There to dwell in His presence with joy evermore,
For His love never knows any change. [Refrain]
