Great is thy faithfulness,
Each morning I awake
I have a new beginning and a fresh start
My sins of yesterday are blotted out,
Morning by morning new mercies I see.
You forgive me of my trespasses
You discipline the wickedness in my heart
In spite of my disobedience towards you
You still meet my needs
Food on my table; shoes on my feet
You are my still water and green pastures
All I have needed your hands have provided
Great is your faithfulness.
From age to age You have remained the same
You are a father unto me.
Tis So Sweet to trust in Jesus
In painful moments it is better to trust in You
Because you are the giver of peace
Your joy is our strength
And we have been standing on your faithfulness
I take you at your word,
Your never-ending, never-changing Word
I trust in your consistency.
Oh, I trust in your consistency.
You do not slumber; You do not sleep
I can say no to stress
And rest upon Your promise
Because I know what thus says the Lord
Each day, each stage of my life
I am able to prove You more and more
You are precious and worthy of trust
Give me the grace to trust You more;
We need grace to trust you more
When peace like a river attendeth my way
When sorrows like sea billows roll
I remember with Christ in the vessel I can smile at the storm
I remember His “Peace, be still”
Then I confirmed that by His words
It is well.
I encourage myself that it is well with my soul
I assured my heart that it is well
Then command it to exalt the Most High God
Though Satan should buffet,
Though trials should come,
It is well, it is well with my soul.
James 1:2-4 Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. And let endurance have its perfect result, so that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.
Isaiah 66:12 For thus says the LORD, “Behold, I extend peace to her like a river, And the glory of the nations like an overflowing stream; And you will be nursed, you will be carried on the hip and fondled on the knees.
