“I the Lord do not change.” (Malachi 3:6 ESV)
Hymn ELH 7:1-3 Praise to the Father
Praise to the Father, the glorious King of creation!
Swell the loud chorus, ye chosen of every nation!
O my soul, wake!
Harp, lute and psaltery take;
Sound forth thy true adoration.
Praise to the Son: for the cross that once shamefully bore Him,
Now, on the throne of His power let all creatures adore Him!
Man reigns on high!
Lo! all the hosts of the sky
Bow down and worship before Him!
Praise to the Spirit, whose strong, rushing wind, ever blowing,
Still through the world, wheresoever it wisheth, is going.
Darkness and death
Drink, from Thy quickening breath
Life, light, and joy overflowing.
O God, throughout all generations You have shown Your love for all people, and from eternity You have never changed. Give me comfort in knowing that Your Word is certain and cannot change. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
