We sing it in church, I really like it. Others I know do not. (I almost put "not" in all caps the dislike is so great.)
Anyway the chorus says
We will remember, we will rememberNow I should give a caveat--Great Is Thy Faithfulness is my favorite song, the one I go to when life starts happening, the one I cling to. So any song with that line can't be all bad.
We will remember the works of Your hands
We will stop and give you praise
For great is Thy faithfulness
But I digress, I like to be reminded to remember.
To remember who He is.And isn't that what Lent is all about.
To dwell on all He has done.
To see, and record Him in action.
To consider the great depths we have been pulled from.So this Lent, and, yes, I realize I am days late, I am going to remember--to make record in this place. Because Great Is His Faithfulness.
To remember the chains binding us to our sin.
To remember the great love compelling Him to come,
binding Him in ropes made by His own creatures,
nailing Him to a cross,
making Him the sacrifice.
To remember the days dark when it seemed hope was lost.
To remember the tomb empty.
To remember the eyes following His ascension.
- her face drawing near in the morning
- keeping the waking to one 20 minute time frame
- the cashier at the grocery store making over Abigail's onion sets
- boys in slings
- breakfast out
- special drinks with my two favorite little people
- having two favorite little people
- his happy squeals
- falling asleep touching toes
- magazines and scissors and just enough frustration to know she is learning
- binders with clear covers made beautiful to collect learning
- his voice returning my call
- his patience listening to me think on the phone
- the lady who stopped, shared her jack and her headlights for us to fix the blowout
- vest warm days
- icicles shrinking
- finding the batteries to fit the flashlight after whispered prayer
- listening to her pray for Haiti
- his "angry duck" face
- children's songs straight from the Word
