His mercies begin afresh each morning
(Lamentations 3:22; NLT).
1. It’s always the Beginning, Lord:
Each day you make me new.
2. It’s always Advent,
While you wait for me to turn to you.
3. It’s always Christmas, Lord:
You’re born again in my poor soul.
4. It’s always Holy Week,
When you face death to make me whole.
5. It’s always Easter, Lord:
You rise again to give me faith.
6. It’s always Pentecost,
When your great Spirit gives me grace.
7. It’s always Harvest, Lord:
Each night we probe the day that’s past –
8. So it’s always Judgement Day,
Lord, may I see your face, at last?
