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.


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!

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.


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.


He who pardoned erring Peter
Never needst thou fear;
He who came to faithless Thomas
All thy doubt will clear;
He who let the loved disciple
On His bosom rest,
Bids thee still, with love as tender,
Lean upon His breast.


He who ‘mid the raging billows
Walked upon the sea
Still can hush our wildest tempest,
As on Galilee;
He who wept and prayed in anguish
In Gethsemane
Drinks with us each cup of trembling,
In our agony.


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.
