1
"THOU art the Same," our one, unchanging God,
Who sittest high above the angry flood;
With Thee for refuge, and with Thee for strength,
We shall, though fierce the storm, reach home at length.
2
If on the road we find a vale of tears,
A scene of sorrow and disturbing fears,
'Tis joy to know the time cannot be long
Ere all is changed, and sadness turn to song.
3
We must give thanks, though deep the sorrow here,
For 'tis in grief that Thou dost draw so near;
Dost touch Thy people in Thine own sweet way,
And turn their night of weeping into day.
4
O what a God! How can we sing thy praise?
The hymn's too great for our poor hearts to raise.
And yet we must our adoration bring;
Thy Spirit lifts us up, and makes us sing.

H.D'A. Champney
