O Christ the Same, through All Our Story's Pages

O Christ the same, through all our story's pages,
	our loves and hopes, our failures and our fears;
eternal Lord, the King of all the ages,
	unchanging still, amid the passing years:
O living Word, the source of all creation,
	who spread the skies, and set the stars ablaze,
O Christ the same, who wrought our whole salvation,
	we bring our thanks for all our yesterdays.

O Christ the same, the friend of sinners, sharing
	our inmost thoughts, the secrets none can hide,
still as of old upon your body bearing
	the marks of love, in triumph glorified:
O Son of Man, who stooped for us from heaven,
	O Prince of life, in all your saving power,
O Christ the same, to whom our hearts are given,
	we bring our thanks for this the present hour.

O Christ the same, secure within whose keeping
	our lives and loves, our days and years remain,
our work and rest, our waking and our sleeping,
	our calm and storm, our pleasure and our pain:
O Lord of love, for all our joys and sorrows,
	for all our hopes, when earth shall fade and flee,
O Christ the same, beyond our brief tomorrows,
	we bring our thanks for all that is to be.
