Changeless Champion

"Of old hast Thou laid the foundation of the earth: and the heavens are the work of Thy hands.  They shall perish, but Thou shalt endure: yea, all of them shall wax old like a garment; as a vesture shalt Thou change them, and they shall be changed: but Thou art the same, and Thy years shall have no end" (Psalm 102:25-27).  "A Friend loveth at all times, and a Brother is born for adversity" (Proverbs 17:17).  "We will give ourselves continually to prayer, and to the ministry of the Word" (Acts 6:4). 

The earth and heavens we behold  
Shall perish, as our God arranged.
By His decree, they're growing old,
And very soon they shall be changed. 

Yet it is good to be assured
That yesterday, today, and ever
Our Lord, as changeless as His Word,
Is always faithful, changing never! 

He is our great unchanging Friend,
Our Kinsman born to bear our shame! 
His years shall never have an end;
He is forevermore the same. 

O Lord, our changeless Champion,
We lift to You our prayer and praise   
As in Your Word we've just begun
Exploring Your eternal ways.
