Great Is Thy Faithfulness

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 has been, thou forever will 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.
 
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!
 
Pardon for sin and a peace that endureth,
Thine own great presence to cheer and to guide;
Strength for today, and bright hope for tomorrow
Blessings all mine, with ten thousand beside.
 
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!
 
-Thomas O. Chisholm, 1923

He’s Been Faithful

In my moments of fear, through every pain, every tear,
There’s a God who’s been faithful to me
When my strength was all gone, when my heart had no song
Still in love He’s proved faithful to me
 
Every word He’s promised is true;
What I thought was impossible
I’ve seen my God do.
 
He’s been faithful, faithful to me
Looking back His love and mercy I see.
Though in my heart I have questioned
Even failed to believe,
Yet, He’s been faithful, faithful to me
 
When my heart looked away, the many times I could not pray
still my God, He was faithful to me.
The days I’ve spent so selfishly, reaching out for what pleased me
Even then God was faithful to me
 
And every time I come back to Him,
He is  waiting with His open arms
And I know once again.
 
He’s been faithful, faithful to me
Looking back His love and mercy I see.
Though in my heart I have questioned
Even failed to believe,
Yet, He’s been faithful, faithful to me
 
-Carol Cymbala, 1989
