Hymn of the day #771 WOV, 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 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 spring time 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! Refrain
