Great is Thy Faithfulness

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!
Words by Thomas O. Chisholm, 1923. Ac­cord­ing to Chis­holm, there were no spe­cial cir­cum­stanc­es which caused its writ­ing—just his ex­per­i­ence and Bi­ble truth. The hymn first ap­peared in Songs of Sal­va­tion and Serv­ice, 1923, com­piled by Wil­liam M. Run­yan. It is the un­of­fi­cial “school hymn” of Moo­dy Bi­ble In­sti­tute (my alma mater) in Chi­ca­go, with which Run­yan was as­so­ci­at­ed for a num­ber of years.
Tiny starter plants, rain, sunshine, a small border in our hosta garden, a harvest of fresh greens! EVERYTHING I need for life and godliness (II Peter 1:3) comes from the hand of a Faithful Father! Thank you, God.

  5. This is one hymn that I haven't written a monologue for. I started something at my church called "Heart of Worship". The author of a particular hymn comes to the church an talks about their life and salvation and the hymn that they've written. So far, we meant Fanny J Crosby, John Newton, Horatio Spafford, Julia Ward Howe & Chaplin Charles McCabe, Francis Scott Key. They are dress as they would be for their day & time. I have several who have yet paid us a visit. I think the next one is William Booth.

  6. I always find much comfort visiting here, lovely poem, picture and scripture....:-) Hugs
