From everlasting to everlasting, Behold—I am God. I've created mankind From the dusty sod. There is no disparity Nor variance with me. In truth, as I am— I shall forever be Alpha and Omega— The first and last. The dawn and scope Of ages past. There is none like me, And my decree shall be. I declare all things; There is none like me. I am self-existing: For I alone am God Who rules the powers that be With the scepter and rod. I, Jehovah, never change. And tho' the heavens sever— I the Lord am the same Yesterday and forever.
