He changeth not. . .

We blossom and flourish as leaves on the tree,
And wither and perish—but naught changeth Thee.

Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever.
Hebrews 13:8

Project description  

Immortal, Invisible, God Only Wise
Immortal, invisible, God only wise,
In light inaccessible hid from our eyes,
Most blessèd, most glorious, the Ancient of Days,
Almighty, victorious, Thy great Name we praise.

Unresting, unhasting, and silent as light,
Nor wanting, nor wasting, Thou rulest in might;
Thy justice, like mountains, high soaring above
Thy clouds, which are fountains of goodness and love.

To all, life Thou givest, to both great and small;
In all life Thou livest, the true life of all;
We blossom and flourish as leaves on the tree,
And wither and perish—but naught changeth Thee.

Great Father of glory, pure Father of light,
Thine angels adore Thee, all veiling their sight;
But of all Thy rich graces this grace, Lord, impart
Take the veil from our faces, the vile from our heart.

All laud we would render; O help us to see
’Tis only the splendor of light hideth Thee,
And so let Thy glory, Almighty, impart,
Through Christ in His story, Thy Christ to the heart.

Walter Smith 1876

The focal point of this card (which is a bit hard to see) are lyrics taken from the beautiful hymn, Immortal, Invisible, Got Only Wise. The stamp is from one of my favorite Sweet and Sassy sets. Seasons of Change. It is stamped on a digi image from Polly's Paper Studio, which is layered atop a gold frame and another digi from Polly's. I used some crinkled seam binding, buttons and Spellbinders and Memory Box dies. The ivory background was embossed with a folder from Stampin up to provde a bit more texture. It is finished off with three brads.
