Godís Faithfulness††††††††††††††††††††††† Don Fortner

(Tune: Sweet Hour of Prayer†† #361LMD)

1.       Throughout my days my pathís been marked By God, my Fatherís, loving heart.

†††††† Heís ordered every step with care. Iíve met His goodness everywhere.

†††††† When I was lost and knew Him not, Prevenient grace marked every spot;

†††††† And angels came for Godís elect, Though in rebellion, to protect.

 

2.       Then in the time and at the place Which God had purposed by His grace,

†††††† The Spirit came and made me live. God caused His chosen to believe.

†††††† Through all my days, since first I saw That Jesus Christ is all in all,

†††††† My Savior has in faithfulness Sustained and kept me by His grace.

 

3.       When fallen, He restores my soul, Forgives my sin, and still upholds

†††††His erring child with love and grace, And proves His covínant faithfulness.

†††††† When sick, my Savior makes my bed, And soothes my aching, fainting head.

†††††† And when I leave this world of woe, To God, my faithful God, Iíll go!

 

4.       No more to sin, no more to sigh. The tears you see will soon be dry.

†††††† When I have dropped this robe of flesh, Iíll leave behind all signs of death!

†††††† Immortal life awaits my soul! When Iím with Christ, I shall be whole!

†††††† Conformed to Him who died for me With Him, at last, I shall be free!
