O changeless Christ, for ever new,
who walked our earthly ways,
still draw our hearts as once you drew
the hearts of other days.
As once you spoke by plain and hill
or taught by shore and sea,
so be today our teacher still,
O Christ of Galilee.
As wind and storm their master heard
and his command fulfilled,
may troubled hearts receive your word,
the tempest-tossed be stilled.
And as of old who prayed
your healing hand was shown,
so be your touch upon us laid,
unseen but not unknown.
In broken bread, in wine outpoured,
your new and living way
proclaim to us, O risen Lord,
O Christ of this our day.
O changeless Christ, till life is past
your blessing still be given;
then bring us home, to taste at last
the timeless joys of heaven.
