Counting Mercies: Springtime and Bright Hope

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.

 


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

Thankful for springtime and for His continued faithfulness! Thankful for bare feet and baby toes! Thankful for shirtless boys and brown-eyed girls! Thankful for snaggle-toothed smiles and a heart that knows it was made to worship. Thankful for the strength I need for today and BRIGHT HOPE for all that lies ahead! 

Big news coming soon that I can't wait to share! Stay posted...

XOXO,
Melanie
