God’s Mercy Will Extend this Year
I do not have to wait and hope
God’s mercy will extend this year,
I do not have to fear the day
His faithfulness will disappear;
They both endure while time shall last
And then extend when earth is past.
I do not have to wait and see
What changes He will undergo;
He doesn’t change, He cannot fail
He’s still the same and so I know
That I can trust Him year by year
Until the day He will appear.
I do not have to wait and fear
The things that I will face this year;
With God to guide my steps each day
I know that He is always near.
Whatever comes He’s with me still
To bless me as I do His will.
I do not have to wait to know
The fullness of God’s love for me –
Each day some more He’ll gladly show
If I will set myself to see;
If I will look for what He’s done
I’ll see His blessings one by one.
