Great is Thy Faithfulness

This hymn was written as a poem by Thomas O Chisholm (1866–1960) in 1923, set to a tune composed by William M. Runyan (1870–1957), and first published that year by Hope Publishing Company.

Both the lyrics and tune are still copyright in many countries, but not in the USA due to their original publication date.

Lyrics:


Traditional

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.

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.

Pardon for sin and a peace that endureth,
Thine own great presence to cheer and to guide;
Strength for today, and bright hope for tomorrow
Blessings all mine, with ten thousand beside.


Modern

Great is You faithfulness, O God my Father;
There is no shadow of turning with you,
You changest not, Your compassions they fail not,
As You have been, You forever will be.

Refrain:
Great is Your faithfulness!
Great is Your faithfulness!
Morning by morning new mercies I see
All I have needed Your hand has provided
Great is Your 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 Your great faithfulness, mercy, and love.

Pardon for sin and a peace that endureth,
Your own great presence to cheer and to guide;
Strength for today, and bright hope for tomorrow
Blessings all mine, with ten thousand beside.
