If you know where to get a good pho­to of Mc­Ken­zie or Ver­non (head & shoul­ders, at least 200×300 pix­els),


The world is chang­ing ev­ery day,
And time is swift­ly pass­ing by;
But Je­sus’ love will ne­ver change,
’Twill last through­out ete­rn­ity.


He ne­ver chang­es, for His love
Is deep and bound­less as the sea;
It’s com­ing from the throne above,
And flow­ing now for you and me.

Your friends may fail you here be­low,
Their love to you grow cold and strange;
Remember Je­sus still is true,
And He will ne­ver, ne­ver change.


Though friends for­sake and joy de­part,
Still lean on Je­sus, He’s your friend;
He will sweet peace to you im­part,
And be un­chang­ing to the end.
