Hymn/Song Information

GREAT IS THY FATHFULNESS




My God, how endless is thy love;
thy gifts are every evening new;
and morning mercies from above
gently distill, like early dew.


Thou spread'st the curtains of the night,
great Guardian of my sleeping hours:
thy sovereign word restores the light,
and quickens all my slumbering powers.


I yield my powers to thy command,
to thee I consecrate my days:
perpetual blessings from thine hand
demand perpetual songs of praise.


---Alternative verses---


Thou spread'st the curtains of the night,
great Guardian of my sleeping hours:
thy sovereign word restores the light,
and quickens all my drowsy powers.


I yield my powers to thy command,
To thee devote my nights and days:
perpetual blessings from thine hand
demand perpetual songs of praise.
