Great is Thy Faithfulness

Daily, songs of worship come to me, and when I sing them, there is peace and hope.  Scriptures too, are alive and moving in my heart and mind.
Today's song is a wonderful old hymn.  Such promises!  Truly, all I have needed He has provided.  Daily, mercies are new. I will take the time to share some of them soon, although there are too many to count.  Thank you to each of you for your part in extending God's mercies to our family: through your prayers, your help, your donations, your meals, your homes adorned with green ribbons ... they all give us strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow.  
Peace to you.  May you have a song to sing today as well.

  • "Great is Thy faithfulness," O God my Father,
    There is no shadow of turning with Thee;
    Thou changest not, Thy compassions, they fail not
    As Thou hast been Thou forever wilt be.
    • "Great is Thy faithfulness!" "Great is Thy faithfulness!"
        Morning by morning new mercies I see;
      All I have needed Thy hand hath provided—
          "Great is Thy faithfulness," Lord, unto me!
  • Summer and winter, and springtime and harvest,
    Sun, moon and stars in their courses above,
    Join with all nature in manifold witness
    To Thy great faithfulness, mercy and love.
  • Pardon for sin and a peace that endureth,
    Thy own dear presence to cheer and to guide;
    Strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow,
    Blessings all mine, with ten thousand beside!
