When Our Lord Was Here In The Olden Time


When our Lord was here in the olden time,
As he went his earthly way,
He would hear the cry of the humblest soul,
But is he the same today?

Chorus:
He is just the same today,
Yes, he’s just the same today,
For he hears and answers when we pray,
He is just the same today!

To our burdened one by the weight of sin,
O how often did he say,
“Freely I forgive, go and sin no more,
“But is he the same today? [Chorus]

Then they bro’t their sick to the Master’s feet,
And he never said them nay,
For he heal’d them all with his gracious touch,
But is he the same today? [Chorus]

When with “one accord” his disciples prayed
On that Pentecostal day,
As he said, the Spirit upon them came,
But is he the same today? [Chorus]

“Jesus Christ the same yesterday, today,
And forever,” doth it say
In his holy word, and we do believe
He is just the same today. [Chorus]
