My favorite

Today in church we sang this hymn.  It is my favorite hymn.

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.

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,
Thy 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!

Text:  Thomas O. Chisholm  (1866-1960)
Music:  William M. Runyan  (1870-1957)

Thank you for reading.  Have a wonderful day.

This is my favourite hymn too. It was played at my father's funeral.
I often play it on the piano.
