CQOD: 03/29/07 -- Watts: My God, how endless is Thy love!

Christian Quotation of the Day

March 29, 2007
Commemoration of Jack Winslow, Missionary, Evangelist, 1974
    This I recall to my mind, therefore have I hope. It is of the LORD'S mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.
    -- Lamentations 3:21-23 (KJV)

    My God, how endless is Thy love!
    Thy gifts are every evening new,
    And morning mercies from above
    Gently distill like early dew.

    Thou spread’st the curtains of the night,
    Great guardian of my sleeping hours;
    Thy sov’reign word restores the light,
    And quickens all my drowsy powers.

    I yield my powers to Thy command,
    To Thee I consecrate my days;
    Perpetual blessings from Thine hand
    Demand perpetual songs of praise.
    ... Isaac Watts (1674-1748), Psalms of David Imitated [1719], Psalm 81

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, all my hope is in You.
