240. JESUS IS THE SAME FOREVER
1. Jesus is the same for ever,
As of old, so now today;
All the hosts of hell endeavour
Vainly to obstruct His sway.
In His people’s hearts He reigneth,
Finishes what He begins;
Jesus still “all power” retaineth,
Saves His people from their sins.
2. Jesus is the same for ever;
Yes, He heals the sick to-day.
As of ld, so now, He never
Turns one suffering child away.
He can cure the worst diseases,
For he understands our frame;
Bore our griefs, and so releases
All who dare their rights to claim.
3. Jesus is the same for ever;
Still He says “In Me abide.”
From His love no power can sever
Those who in their Lord confide,
Sweetly from all care He frees us,
Ours the comfort –his the shame,
Blessed Saviour; precious Jesus
There’s no music like Thy name.
1. Admit that you are a sinner. "For all [humans] have sinned, and comes short of the glory of God....[and] the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord" (Romans 3:23)
2. Repent now. "Repent ye therefore, and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out ...[for] if we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness " (Acts 3:19, 1 John 1:9)
3. Believe that God loves you and Jesus died for you. "God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet Sinners, Christ died for us" (Romans 5:8)
4. Invite Jesus into your life through prayer of faith. Jesus says, "Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me" (Revelation 3:20)
