Great Is Thy Faithfulness ~ 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 will be.

Refrain

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

Words: Thomas O. Chisholm, 1923

During our Mennonite Girls Can Cook Summit we enjoyed some hymn singing together. We sang this great hymn and Praise God from Whom All Blessings Flow before each of our meals. We found out that 9 out of 10 of us were altos!

Praise God, from Whom all blessings flow;
Praise Him, all creatures here below;
Praise Him above, ye heavenly host;
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.

Words: Thomas Ken, 1674

  1. I certainly enjoyed reading all the posts about your wonderful reunion – or summit, as Judy called it. How fortunate you were to be able to get together, to get acquainted, to eat together, sing and celebrate the wonderful accomplishment and the friendship you have together.

  2. I LOVE this hymn. Around the Mennonites are KNOWN for their singing…any event is completed by singing at some point. Voices raised in praise to our Father…we can all come together no matter what our life stories. Beautiful.

  3. Thanks for this beautiful hymn! Love singing the old hymns – especially this one. In our family we always used to sing ‘Praise God from whom all blessings flow’, as a closing prayer after a meal!

    Thanks for your comments on today’s post. Will still be thinking on this I’m sure!
