Morning by Mourning

My eyes will flow without ceasing, without respite,
until the Lord from heaven looks down and sees.

–Lamentations 3:49-50

Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.

–Matt. 5:4

Let this be my prayer, O God.  Help me to sing this song out through this ache and pain.  Take my mourning and use it to show me something beautiful.

Great is thy faithfulness, O God my Father;
there is no shadow of turning with thee;
thou changest not, thy compassions, they fail not;
as thou hast been thou forever will be.

Great is thy faithfulness! Great is thy faithfulness!
Morning by morning new mercies I see;
all I have needed thy hand hath provided;
great is thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me!

Summer and winter and springtime and harvest,
sun, moon and stars in their courses above
join with all nature in manifold witness
to thy great faithfulness, mercy and love.

Pardon for sin and a peace that endureth
thy own dear presence to cheer and to guide;
strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow,
blessings all mine, with ten thousand beside!

Rest in peace, Colin.  Rest in peace, Furl.
