Yesterday Today Forever
Refrain  [1]  [2]  [3]  [4] 
Contemporary
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.
Oh, how sweet the glorious message,
Simple faith may claim;
Yesterday, today, and 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!
He who was the friend of sinners,
Seeks thee, 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 suff'rer
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 we give as much.
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 be this same Jesus,
As He went away.

Oh, how sweet the glorious message,
Simple faith may claim;
Yesterday, today, and 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!

Refrain
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 thee, lost one, now;
Sinner, come, and at His footstool
Penitently bow. He who said "I'll not

Speaks to thee that word of pardon,
As in days of yore.

Oft on earth He healed the suff'rer
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 we give as much.

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 be this same Jesus,
As He went away.
