God’s love will never fail us

An adaptation of Psalm 136 for personal or corporate prayer.
Works well as a call to worship.

***

Give thanks to the Lord, for God is good.
God’s love will never fail us.
Give thanks to the God of gods.
God’s love will never fail us.
Give thanks to the Lord of lords:
God’s love will never fail us.

For God alone does that which we thought impossible,
creating by hand the heavens,
charting the rivers and the seas,
raising up snow-capped mountains and liveable land,
setting the rhythm of our days and seasons
by the light of the sun and moon and stars:
God’s love will never fail us.

Indeed God alone does not leave us
in places of darkness and desolation
but stretches out child-embracing, leper-touching, sight-restoring hands
to rescue us from our despair
and bring us safely through insurmountable obstacles,
and unbearable, inhospitable circumstances.
God’s love will never fail us.

God alone remembers us at the lowest point of our lives
and humbles those who seek to keep us there.
God reignites our hope,
promising us not only the comfort of heaven
but also the provision of daily bread –
to us and every creature.
God’s love will never fail us.

So give thanks to the God of heaven
and Lord of earth;
God’s love will never fail us
the Keeper of your life and mine.
God’s love will never fail us
In God’s love we are made,
God’s love will never fail us
in God’s love we are set free,
God’s love will never fail us
in God’s love we find hope and comfort.
God’s love will never fail us.
