A Fresh Jawbone — A Thought for the Day

“…but as to the Son, Thy throne, O God, [is] to the age of the age, and a sceptre of uprightness [is] the sceptre of thy kingdom. Thou hast loved righteousness and hast hated lawlessness; therefore God, thy God, has anointed thee with oil of gladness above thy companions. And, Thou in the beginning, Lord, hast founded the earth, and works of thy hands are the heavens. They shall perish, but thou continuest still; and they all shall grow old as a garment, and as a covering shalt thou roll them up, and they shall be changed; but thou art the Same, and thy years shall not fail.” (Hebrews 1: 8-12)

  

Jesus, our Lord, our all,

To Thee we cling;

Keep us (while empires fall)

Under Thy wing.

Saviour to Thee we pray,

Knowing Thy Name;

Yesterday and today

Ever the Same!

 

Quickly the moments flee,

Passing away;

One thousand years to Thee

Are as one day.

Changeless Thy majesty,

Wondrous Thy Name;

Through all eternity

Thou art the Same!

 

Maker of worlds of old,

The starry sky;

Thou shalt their glories fold,

And lay them by.

Yet Thy years never fail,

Endless Thy fame;

Thy mighty power we hail,

Thou are the Same!
