"Great is Thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me"

This was one of the hymns at CHPC on Sunday (albeit minorly contemporized/PC-ified, which I basically ignored). It was stuck in my head this morning, which was probably an improvement over the recent internal singing I've been doing of angsty stuff like Dar's "Iowa." When we sang it on Sunday, I found myself particularly struck by the first and third lines of the third verse -- hence the bolding here.
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 will be.

Refrain

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!


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.

Refrain

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 beside!

Refrain
