No change of time shall ever shock

Full Text

1 No change of time shall ever shock
My firm affection, Lord, to Thee;
For Thou hast always been a Rock,
A Fortress and Defence to me.

2 Thou my Deliverer art, my God;
My trust is in Thy mighty power:
Thou art my Shield from foes abroad;
At home, my Safeguard and my Tower.

3 To Thee I will address my prayer,
To whom all praise we justly owe;
So shall I, by Thy watchful care,
Be guarded safe from every foe.

4 Let the eternal Lord be praised,
The Rock on whose defence I rest:
O'er highest heavens His name be raised,
Who me with His salvation blest.
