You are constant, Lord.
We see glimpses
of your constancy around us --
the rising and setting of the sun,
the opening and closing of flowers,
the rushing and retreating of waves.
But these are just a shadow of the Greater,
just a brush stroke of the painter.
For even the sun does not appear each day the same;
even the flower falls before its time;
even the waves answer to a stronger moon.
You and only you
are constant and faithful
For You and only You
You do not shake;
You do not change;
You do not bend or bow
in any form or way.
You answer to no one,
and so You alone are able --
Able to be the same,
