Our Comforter, and Friend.

Always there –
Our source, our life, our end.

The dust returns to the ground it came from,
and the spirit returns to God who gave it
(Ecclesiastes 12:7; NIV).

The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning (Lamentations 3:22-3; ESV).

1. Every day, my Father,
You make all creation new,
And every day, my Still Small Voice,
You teach me what is true.

2. Every day, my Advocate,
You stand to plead my case,
And every day, my Prince of Peace,
You fill me with your grace.

3. Every day, my Counsellor,
You help me face my fears,
And every day, my Comforter,
You wipe away my tears.

4. Every day, my Lord of lords,
You make me more like you,
And every day, my King of kings,
You heal my spirit, too.

5. Every day, my Holy One,
You give me a new heart,
And every day, Bright Morning Star,
You grant me a fresh start.
