From The Hymnal~Great Is Thy Faithfulness

Saturday, September 25, 2010

It is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness. Lamentations 3:22-23

Another favorite hymn. This hymn has always really spoke to my heart and I am in awe of the FAITHFULNESS of my Lord and Savior. Our homestead is named Faithfulness Farm because of the message of this hymn.....Morning by morning new mercies I see, All I have needed Thy hand has provided; Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me! If you do not know this wonderful hymn, you'll find it here. Please listen and be blessed!

Great is They 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.


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



  1. That's one of my very, very favorite hymns and I hum the tune all the time. I think it's my default OCD song in my head. Thank goodness it's this song!

    I LOVE this hymn....I'm so happy you are doing "From the Hymnal"...I sure miss the old hymns in church. We still sing some of them, but not enough for my taste ~smile~ Have a beautiful weekend! Heather

  1. Dear Gail,

    This is probably one of my three favorite hymns of all times (the other two being Amazing Grace and How Great Thou Art). There is so much great theology and so much revelation of God's character in these songs.

    "Morning by morning new mercies I see..."

    As I continue to grow in the knowledge of the Lord's grace, the profoundity of this statement never ceases to amaze me.

    Thank you for sharing this favorite hymn with us today. I am off to click on the link and visit You Tube now!


  1. Gail~ My very favorite hymn! I love and cherish and believe each and every verse! I have seen this first hand in my life. Praise God for his faithfulness... and the verse from Lamentations!

  1. I love all of the old hymns. While I was reading the words, I was thinking of our choir singing this song. It always moves me to hear it sung by the choir. laurie

  1. I too am amazed as each new day arrives of the tender sweet mercies our Savior offers to us. Beautiful sentiments throughout. We like Julie sang another one of my favorites, "I believe in Christ' Sunday.
