Change is written everywhere,
Time and death o’er all are ranging;
Seasons, creatures, all declare,
Man is mortal, earth is changing.
Life and all its treasures seem
Like a sea in constant motion;
Thanks for an eternal beam
Shining o’er the pathless ocean.
One by one, although each name
Providence or death will sever;
Jesus Christ is still the same
Yesterday, today, forever.
