7774. Yesterday, Today, Forever

1. O how sweet the glorious message simple faith may claim
Yesterday, today, forever Jesus is the same.
Still He loves to save the sinful, heal the sick and lame
Cheer the mourner, still the tempest, glory to His name.

Refrain
Yesterday, today, forever, Jesus is the same.
All may change, but Jesus never! Glory to His name!
Glory to His name! Glory to His name!
All may change, but Jesus never! Glory to His name!

2. He, who was the friend of sinners, seeks the lost one now
Sinner come, and at His footstool penitently bow
He who said I’ll not condemn thee, go and sin no more,
Speaks to thee that word of pardon as in days of yore. [Refrain]

3. Oft on earth He healed the sufferer by His mighty hand
Still our sicknesses and sorrows go at His command
He who gave His healing virtue to a woman’s touch
To the faith that claims His fullness still will give as much. [Refrain]

4. As of old He walked to Emmaus, with them to abide
So through all life’s way He walketh ever near our side
Soon again we shall behold Him, Hasten Lord the day
But twill still be this same Jesus as He went away. [Refrain]
