The text for today's hymn cannot be published due to copyright limitations. We apologize for the inconvenience.

The neighbor boys sang a song for their mother
Sang a song of faithfulness in her life
A song of God at work.

Sang a song that worms its way into my ear
Over and over, day after day
Great is thy faithfulness
Great is thy faithfulness
Morning by morning new mercies I see

But the Israelites didn't see
didn't know this God, their redeemer.
The god they knew reversed his word,
Set them free only to pursue them to the Reed Sea.

Who was this God of Aaron and Moses?
This God who supplied their every need?

Thank you, God, for your compassion, which does not fail. Thank you, God, for your mercies new every morning. Thank you, God, for your great faithfulness unto me. Amen.
