Great Is Thy Faithfulness

“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” (Lam. 3:22-23). The words the prophet Jeremiah penned under inspiration 2600 years ago stirred T.O. Chisholm to write one of the beloved hymns of modern times.

 

Thomas Obediah Chisholm, born in Kentucky in 1866, became a Christian at age 27 and a pastor a few years later. Health issues forced him to resign his position and move to New Jersey, where he sold insurance. Poor health plagued Chisholm most of his life; still he testified, “God has given me many wonderful displays of His providing care, which have filled me with astonishing thankfulness.” In 1923 he wrote the text to the hymn we still sing today, “Great Is Thy Faithfulness.”


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!

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.
