God's Faithfulness

“Great is Thy faithfulness oh God our Father

There is no shadow of turning with Thee

All I have needed Thy hand hath provided

Great is Thy faithfulness Lord unto me”

The words that here are spoken in this glorious melody

Are words that tell a mighty truth that all the world must see

About our loving Father Who gave all that He could give

And still provides the essence of all things we need to live

They tell us how His faithfulness will never turn away

From those who seek Him faithfully to guide them everyday

How even in our darkest hour when we feel all alone

We still might feel His loving arms that tell us we're His own

First by the fact He made us from the earth as one with Him

Then breathed in us the breath of life at first in each of them

Who were to be our parents in that garden formed by love

That garden unlike anything this world can tell us of

Where all was pure perfection not one single stain of sin

And awe filled every moment in this garden they were in

Until in doubt Eve wandered from the side of him she knew

And listened to the serpent whom the evil one spoke through

And listening she gave her heart to ponder selfish things

That brought on her posterity a world of sufferings

Saved only by the cleansing blood of that great sacrifice

That blood that through the centuries did point to Jesus Christ

Who secondly did make us to be His by what was done

The Father giving all He had for us through Christ the Son

Who not just as our Sacrifice but as our perfect kin

Forever will be One with us to bear the marks of sin

For which He paid the perfect Price that we could not afford

The Price of our redemption for the ones that He adored

Though sinful stained and fallen still in likeness made like Him

To be remade His people when He comes to rapture them

Who waiting will be watching when His glory splits the sky

And all who have been sleeping will be raised to never die

As in one perfect body we will go to live with Him

Who always for His children had provided all for them

Romans 8:22-39; 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18
