Pada kesempatan kali ini saya akan membagikan / me-review 1 buah pujian yang cukup menguatkan saya di kala saya dalam kesusahan dan kekhawatiran. Lagu ini juga menjadi lagu ucapan syukur bagi mereka yang masih diizinkan Tuhan melihat dunia ini beserta isinya.
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 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
Thine 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 !
Words by Thomas O. Chisholm (1866-1960) & William Runyan
This song is composed and arranged with wonderful touch, not only the lyrics but also the melodies. Time goes on and on, but this 'old' song is still being used to bless so many people in world through time and space. I'm so thankful for the composer & arranger who wrote the lyric based on their personal experience with God.
This songs reminds us "How faithful Our God is" for His compassion, mercy & love. Even in our unfaithful moments God's still there, straight with His faithfulness & guide us to the right path as shepherd.
When we question God & doubt for His faithfulness, He doesn't doubt us.
When we're afraid with unprediction moments, with miserly & stormy life, He's there await for us. He promises, "I will never fail you. I will never abandon you" (Hebrews 13 : 5).
When we leave Him, He never leave us YET He'll find us.
When we sinned, He pardon us with His mercy.
When we pray, He hear us.
Thanks for Your great faithfulness, Lord. Morning my morning new mercies I see. Strength to strive today, bright hope for unsure tomorrow - That's all You give to us. We are safe under Your wings, Lord because all we have needed Thy hand hath provided. Amen.
