Lyrics

Scenes of the world are shifting,
Friends are in time forgot;
But tho’ the mountains crumble,
He changes not.

Refrain

He changes not!
He changes not!
Love Him who faileth never—
He changes not.

Winter gives place to springtime,
Winds blow both cold and hot;
Only our God is stable—
He changes not.

Refrain

Daily we grieve and wonder,
Over man’s changing lot;
Only our God remaineth,
He changes not.

Refrain

How could we live each moment,
If ever we forgot
The loving God above us,
Who changeth not.
