Through all the changing scenes of life

Through all the changing scenes of life,
  In trouble and in joy,
The praises of my God shall still
  My heart and tongue employ.
Oh, magnify the Lord with me,
  With me exalt His name;
When in distress to Him I called,
  He to my rescue came.
The hosts of God encamp around
  The dwellings of the just;
Deliverance He affords to all
  Who on His succor trust.
Oh, make but trial of His love,
  Experience will decide
How blest they are, and only they,
  Who in His truth confide.
Fear Him, ye saints, and you will then
  Have nothing else to fear;
Make you His service your delight,
  Your wants shall be His care.

Through life's ups and downs, in moments of despair, when I am tempted to give up, even when all hope seem lost and fear engulf me, this powerful hymn is what carries me on.

I believe no matter what happens to me, through all the changing scenes of life, God is always there for me and mankind. All we need to do is trust completely in his unfailing love and call on him. I am Catholic but I so much love this powerful hymn of the Methodist Church. 🙏🏾

This hymn keeps on inspiring me to depend on our God. He is with me. It has been one of my favourite hymns since college in 2004 and still, it is.

I visited my former workplace and I saw new faces. I reflected on my time there and this hymn came to mind.

We sang this hymn at a service this morning and the words resonated so deeply with me.

It tells of the great assurance of our God.

He is faithful and constantly with us. Everything around us may change but God remains the only constant in our lives. He never changes and His grace is always sufficient in every circumstance we may find ourselves.

Faithful Father He is.

I love this powerful hymn and the wording. It's really inspirational!!!

It reminds me of Job and his unflinching Loyalty, Trust and faith in God.
