Sabbath Rest – Great is thy Faithfulness

One of my favorites, sung with great simplicity –
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 hast been, Thou forever will be.

[Refrain]
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.

[Refrain]

Pardon for sin and a peace that endureth
Thine own dear presence to cheer and to guide;
Strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow,
Blessings all mine, with ten thousand beside!

The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases;
his mercies never come to an end;
they are new every morning;
Great is your Faithfulness.

  1. Thanks, Steph, for another ‘great’ choice for this afternoon.
    Also one of my favorites. Just finished praying around the family
    while my daughter and baby William have gone to visit Jonathan.
    We’re loving the grand parenting role but wish we were a bit younger!
    (It can really tire us out:). Connie and I were wondering if you are
    planning to come to our part of PA while you’re East? Would so love
    to see you! Rick & Bethann plan to retire June 2016… Lots to catch up
    on. Love being able to keep up with you & Gary & fam on FB. Love ya. Bonnie

  2. Bonnie – I’m still trying to figure out a trip to our old stomping grounds. I’ll keep you and Connie posted, ’cause I would SO love to see you both too! Thanks for stopping by!
