His Love Endures Forever


Psalm 136

Give Thanks to the Lord, for he is good.
His love endures forever.
Give thanks to the God of Gods.
His love endures forever
Give thanks to the Lord of Lords.
His love endures forever.
To him who does great wonders.
His love endures forever.
Who by his understandin made the heavens
His love endures forever
Who spread out the earth upon the waters
His love endures forever
He who made the great lights
His love endures forever
The sun to govern the day
His love endures forever
The moon and stars to govern the night
His love endures forever.

This Psalm goes on to speak about the history of God saving his people, of leading the Hebrews from slavery and caring for them as they wondered through the desert.
The Psalm was written as a responsive Psalm with a leader leading and then the people responding with that wonderful declaration "His love endures forever"

Endures means to stick with, to sustain, and is a very powerful word. God sticks with his people whatever they go through. His is faithful.

Chris Tomlins song is based on this Psalm and the fact that God is Faithful, strong and with us.

I had forgotten that psalm. I tried to play the Utube but couldn't.
