Hymns of Thanksgiving Day 9: Great Is Thy Faithfulness

What a comfort to know that every single day we can count on our Savior. In the relationship we share, we are the only ones that ever falter—He remains faithful through it all. Thanksgiving is a time to reflect on and be thankful for the faithfulness He shows us each day. 

I love that Mr. Chisholm highlights that all we have needed God’s hand has provided. We so often long for things others have and, frankly, things we don’t need. Let’s remind ourselves of all that we’ve been given and from Whom it has ultimately come! 

Great Is Thy Faithfulness

(Thomas O. Chisholm, 1923)

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!

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 dear presence to cheer and to guide,
Strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow;
Blessings all mine, with ten thousand beside!
