Hymn H139

Change is our portion now!
The calm and sunny sea
Sleeps, when the wildest storm is near
So doomed to change are we:
But faithful is Jehovah's word,
I will be with thee, saith the Lord.

Change is our portion now!
Youth's smooth unwrinkled brow
Age soon shall furrow, and the tear
Down the fair cheek shall flow;
But faithful is Jehovah's word,
I will be with thee, saith the Lord.

Change is our portion now!
Soon fades the summer sky,
The landscape droops in autumn sere,
And spring flowers bloom to die;
But faithful is Jehovah's word,
I will be with thee, saith the Lord.
Change is our portion now!

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.
