Change is our portion here

Change is our portion here;
soon fades the summer sky,
the landscape droops in autumn sear,
and spring flowers bloom to die:
but faithful is Jehovah's word,
“I will be with thee,” saith the Lord.

Change is our portion here,
along the heavenly road:
in faith and hope and holy fear,
in love towards our God:
how often we distrust the word,
“I will be with thee,” saith the Lord.

Change is our portion here:
yet midst our changing lot,
midst withering flowers and tempests drear,
there is that changes not.
unchangeable Jehovah's word,
“I will be with thee,” saith the Lord.

Changeless, the way of peace:
changeless, Emmanuel's name;
changeless, the covenant of grace;
eternally the same.
“I change not,” is a Father's word.
“And I am with thee,” saith the Lord.

James Harrington Evans (1785-1849)
