Great Is Your Faithfulness

(A)I am the man who has seen affliction
    under the (B)rod of his wrath;
he has driven and brought me
    (C)into darkness without any light;
surely against me he turns his hand
    again and again the whole day long.

He has made my flesh and my skin waste away;
    (D)he has broken my bones;
(E)he has besieged and enveloped me
    with (F)bitterness and tribulation;
(G)he has made me dwell in darkness
    like the dead of long ago.

(H)He has walled me about so that (I)I cannot escape;
    he has made my chains heavy;
though (J)I call and cry for help,
    he shuts out my prayer;
(K)he has blocked my ways with blocks of stones;
    he has made my paths crooked.

19 (A)Remember my affliction and my wanderings,
    (B)the wormwood and (C)the gall!
20 My soul continually remembers it
    (D)and is bowed down within me.
21 But this I call to mind,
    and (E)therefore I have hope:

22 (F)The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases;[a]
    (G)his mercies never come to an end;
23 they are new (H)every morning;
    (I)great is your faithfulness.
24 (J)“The Lord is my portion,” says my soul,
    (K)“therefore I will hope in him.”
