Great Is Thy Faithfulness -- Piano Instrumental

And there are those times where words and pictures won’t suffice, but hymns; Hymns always. For the ones that need to know, new mercies each morning. Take heart!

“music… will help dissolve your perplexities and purify your character and sensibilities, and in time of care and sorrow, will keep a fountain of joy alive in you” dietrich bonhoeffer 

 

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!
Monring by morning new mercies I see. All I have needed THy hand hath provided,
Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me!

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 besides!

Great is Thy faithfulness!
Great is Thy faithfulness!
Monring by morning new mercies I see. All I have needed THy hand hath provided,
Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me!

Lamentations 3:22-23 King James Version (KJV)

22 It is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not.

23 They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.

Prayer to Saint Expeditus

O glorious Martyr and protector St. Expeditus, having faith in thy great merits and the Precious Blood of Jesus Christ, we humbly beseech thee to reach out and send us the necessary virtues to make us pious and worthy of thy name. By thine intercession with the Almighty in times of need and distress, thou dost inspire us with courage and fidelity. Grant us goodness and grace through our Lord Jesus and the Virgin Mary. Amen.

In my pain
You are faithful
In my loneliness
You are faithful
In my sorrow
You are faithful

In my despair
You are faithful
In my sinfulness
You are faithful
In my grief
You are faithful

In my confusion
You are faithful
In my fear
You are faithful
In my shame
You are faithful

In my anxiety
You are faithful
In my bitterness
You are faithful
In my silence
You are faithful

In my tiredness
You are faithful
In my brokenness
You are faithful
In my stillness
You are faithful

Despite my unworthiness
You are faithful to me
No matter the situation
You are faithful to me
On each day, in all things
You are faithful to me

Your faithfulness breaks down the walls in my heart
Your faithfulness draws me closer and pulls me deeper
Your faithfulness saved me then and saves me now
Jesus, You are the truest thing in my life
