Hymn of the week: Great is Thy Faithfulness (Chisholm/Runyan)

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.

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!

F is for…

If you are a GMK follower you should already have this week’s verse memorized.
I quote it weekly under Psalm 113:3 Moments. Unfortunately I wasn’t taking pictures of the sunsets this week because the photo memory on my iphone is completely full! So here’s a sunset pic from a few months ago I found while deleting hundreds of other sunsets from my phone.

F is for… “From the rising of the sun to its setting,
the name of the Lord is to be praised!” Psalm 113:3

Hymn of the Week: “Joyful, Joyful, We Adore Thee” (Beethoven/Van Dyke)

Joyful, joyful, we adore Thee, God of glory, Lord of love;
Hearts unfold like flowers before Thee, opening to the sun above.
Melt the clouds of sin and sadness; drive the dark of doubt away;
Giver of immortal gladness, fill us with the light of day!

All Thy works with joy surround Thee, Earth and heaven reflect Thy rays,
Stars and angels sing around Thee, Center of unbroken praise.
Field and forest, vale and mountain, flowery meadow, flashing sea,
Chanting bird and flowing fountain call us to rejoice in Thee.

Hymn of the Week: “The Spacious Firmament On High” Addison/Haydn

The spacious firmament on high, With all the blue ethereal sky,
And spangled heavens, a shining frame, Their great Original proclaim:
The unwearied sun, from day to day, Does his Creator’s power display;
And publishes to every land the work of an almighty hand.

Soon as the evening shades prevail,
The moon takes up the wondrous tale,
And nightly, to the listening earth, Repeats the story of her birth;
While all the stars that round her burn,
And all the planets in their turn, Confirm the tidings as they roll,
And spread the truth from pole to pole.

What though, in solemn silence, all
Move round the dark terrestrial ball?
What though no real voice nor sound Amid their radiant orbs be found? In reason’s ear they all rejoice, And utter forth a glorious voice, Forever singing as they shine, “The hand that made us is divine.”
