Great Is Thy Faithfulness
July 19, 2010 Cece Winans

It’s Melodic Monday! Today I want to share with you one of my favorite hymns: Great is Thy Faithfulness performed by Cece Winans. There are three reasons why I chose this song. First, God truly is amazing and so faithful no matter how we behave. Second, his mercies are indeed new every morning. “Because of the LORD’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.” (Lamentations 3:22-23, NIV) Third, we sure do need God and his grace every morning. The good news: there’s plenty of grace for everyone!

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


Gracious God,
Thank you for being so faithful!
Thank you for being so generous with your grace!
Fill us with you grace and peace.
Give us stregth and wisdom to live in your grace.
In Jesus’ name,
