Our Favorite Hymns


Great Is Thy Faithfulness

Friday, March 16                                    Listen:

Author:  Thomas O. Chisholm, 1923

Scripture: Lamentations 3:23-24

This hymn has been one of my favorites for many years. To me, it is the epitome of encouragement and security as we experience the stresses life hands to us. Knowing God is always near and never changes and his compassion never fails is comforting. 

PARDON, PEACE, CHEER, STRENGTH, HOPE and BLESSINGS are like gold nuggets that this hymn so beautifully portrays as gifts to all believers.

Martha Capelouto                         


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


Prayer focus:  Thank you, God, for your faithfulness.
