An Old Hymn

"Great Is Thy Faithfulness" is an old hymn that has been running through my mind these past few days.

The words really speak to my heart.  Hope they speak to yours too.




"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 has 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! 

Written by Thomas O Chisholm


May everyone has a blessed week.

Hugs Debbie

    I need faith to face the illness of my beloved husband.
    So looking at these beautiful pictures and reading the words that invite me to have faith, now I'm better.
    Thanks Debbie for your feelings tender and strong at the same time.
    So we need to be now, both, Danilo
