One Who Never Changes

The often changing circumstances of life and death force us to turn from the gifts to the Giver. His gifts change, but He never does.

No Shadow of Turning

Each person has his sorrows
    And knows his heart’s own grief,
But sometimes in a fellow
    We gain a slight relief.
We find a kindred spirit,
    And don’t feel quite alone,
And thank the One great Giver
    Whose love thereby is shown.

But life is always changing,
    And comforts rarely last.
They come and stay a season
    That all too soon is past.
And every earthly friendship,
    The deepest and most blessed,
So fraught with human weakness,
    Is temporal at best.

But God is always constant.
    He doesn’t turn or shift.
In Him there is no shadow,
    Though changed may be His gift.
In all the varied seasons
    He sends us from above,
His faithfulness won’t waver
    And we can trust His love.
