Old Time Sunday Hymn Sing | Great is Thy Faithfulness

. . ... . . . .. . . . . . ..  . . . . . . .


~Great Is Thy Faithfulness~
Thomas Chisholm, 1923/ William Runyan

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.

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.


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!

***We sang this hymn at our wedding... asking the congregation to join with us.  Different?  Maybe.
But I'll always think of that moment when we stopped to thank God for His faithfulness in bringing our two lives together - as one.

  1. Hi, Bevy,
    That is one of my favorite hymns too. How nice that you used it in your wedding. I think it's very fitting!
    Hope you have a wonderful week! :)
