God is the Faithful One
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. (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)
That is one of my favorite hymns. It was written by a man who was born in a log cabin in Franklin, Kentucky. I like it because it's focus is on the faithfulfulness of God, not our imperfect offerings to Him. He is so WONDERFUL!
Below, in a related matter, is a poem about God's faithfulness written by someone from a completely different walk of life in another part of the world. The faithfulness of God is relevant to all of us.
He leads us on by paths we did not know;
Upward He leads us, though our steps be slow,
Though oft we faint and falter on the way,
Though storms and darkness oft obscure the day;
Yet when the clouds are gone,
We know He leads us on.
He leads us on through all the unquiet years;
Past all our dreamland hopes, and doubts and fears,
He guides our steps, through all the tangled maze
Of losses, sorrows, and o'er clouded days;
We know His will is done;
And still He leads us on.
-Nicolaus L. von Zinzendorf, 1700-1760 (born in Dresden, Germany to one of the most noble and wealthy families)
