morning by morning new mercies I see

{April morning sunrise}
Great is Thy faithfulness
 written by Thomas Chisholm (1866–1960) music composed by William M. Runyan (1870–1957)

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

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 dear 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

Thank you for this...actually very close to the Psalm/Prayer that I say every morning and night...but i think I'll print that image and post to remind me throughout the day. Praise Him when I see his wonderful birds flitting about in my garden - and splashing in my little fountain...and when I look at my lovely roses - all of which I see as Gifts to make our world more beautiful!
God bless
Prayers, if you will, for a very dear friend who is quite ill. He has overcome cancer in the past with the Lord's help - please say a prayer for him and his lovely, loving wife!

My sweet friend - I thought of sharing this hymn on my blog today but time didn't let me do it. It's a favorite of mine and a great reminder of His mercies that are new every morning. He is so faithful!
