His Steadfast Love Endures Forever / on Psalm 136

Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good,
for His steadfast love endures forever.
Give thanks to your King and Friend,
for He has not let you stray too far,
for His steadfast love endures forever.

Gives thanks to the One who formed you from the dust,
for His steadfast love endures forever,
to He who has never stopped perfecting you in the fire,
for His steadfast love endures forever;
who has never allowed the fire to destroy but only to shape,
for His steadfast love endures forever;
to the Author of not only your faith but of your salvation,
for His steadfast love endures forever.

Give thanks to the God of the universe,
who cares for every hair and molecule of your body,
for His steadfast love endures forever;
to the God who would not let you finish your life,
for your time is His that He has given to you,
for His steadfast love endures forever.

Give thanks to the God whose breath is in your lungs
and will not let it extinguish until you will be with Him again,
for His steadfast love endures forever;
to the God of Jacob and of Israel,
to the God of your past and your future,
for His steadfast love endures forever.

Give thanks with your whole heart, whole mind, and whole spirit
to the constant pursuit that is of the Lord,
for His steadfast love endures forever;
and remember His name when floodwaters rise,
or when riverbeds dry, or when all seems lost,
for His steadfast love endures forever;
and remember where you have been,
your own Egypt, your own slavery,
for His steadfast love endures forever;
see your freedom to be His and feel the drawing near,
for nothing earthly can satisfy,
for His steadfast love endures forever.

Praise and honor for the Only One who would bear nails in his hands
and set us on paths of righteousness. Blessed be the Redeemer.
