Morning by morning, new mercies I see



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.


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!


*this mornings' mercies: a love note with coffee, reading and waiting on pumpkin pancakes, a snowman from yesterday, gorgeous blue winter skies, mini chocolate chips in the pancakes: mercies from mama, all to the tune of Fernando Ortega's version of "Great is Thy Faithfulness".
