I’m always reluctant to put videos of me singing because I’m so afraid of people judging me and all that good stuff. but I figured since the world might end soon anyway I might as well put this out there.
Great Is Thy Faithfulness - original print from The Worship Project.
This hymn has seen me through more of life’s hard times than any other song I know.
I remember when I first started this Worship Project, I worked at a department store in New Zealand with my call time at 5.30am. Depending on my schedule I often didn’t have access to a car, so I would walk - in the middle of winter, freezing cold, pitch black, and foggy.
I felt like my life was going nowhere, and that my life had no impact.
However, amidst one of the most depressing and mundane times in my life, there was nothing like spending time in worship. I would spend my hour-long walk to work, singing a song of victory - a hymn of thankfulness for His faithfulness to me - even when I didn’t understand His process or timing.
I pray that just as these lyrics have warmed my heart - over and over again - that you would find your heart touched, inspired, and turned toward Jesus.
Even when it feels hopeless and mundane, sing a song of thankfulness for His faithfulness, and let everything that’s within you give praise to the Lord!
“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.
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!
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 great presence to cheer and to guide; Strength for today, and bright hope for tomorrow. Blessings all mine, with ten thousand beside!”
All I have needed, Your hands have provided, great is Thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me.
Just saw this on the Voice and nearly bawled my eyes out. It is so difficult, especially with everything going on in the world to remember that He is faithful, and that He is good, and all His ways are good. This was such a beautiful reminder; all that I need, He has provided me. He is great, and He is always faithful.
