O give thanks to the Lord; for He is good; for his mercy endureth forever. Psalm 136:1
from my hymn study (Amazing Grace by Kenneth Osborne)….
I had never heard this heard before. It is said to have been written by Joseph Addison after being rescued from a shipwreck. It was just very meaningful to me today, so I thought I would share it.
When all Thy mercies, O my God, my rising soul surveys,
transported with the view, I’m lost in wonder, love and praise.
Unnumbered comforts to my soul Thy tender care bestowed,
before my infant heart conceived from whom those comforts flowed.
When worn with sickness, oft hast Thou with health renewed my face;
and, when in sins and sorrows bowed, revived my soul with grace.
Thru every period of my life, Thy goodness I’ll pursue,
and after death, in distant worlds, the glorious theme renew.
Hope this song touches you in some way today as well.
