His Love Is Eternal

Give thanks to God, for He is so good.
His love is eternal.
His are the mightiest works in the world.
His love is eternal.

Give thanks to God, for He is so good.
His are the mightiest works in the world.

He alone made the earth and the sky.
His love is eternal.
His sun rules the day, and His moon rules the night.
His love is eternal.

He alone made the earth and the sky.
His sun rules the day, and His moon rules the night.

He provides food for all living things.
His love is eternal.
God knows we’re weak, but He gives us strength.
His love is eternal.

He provides food for all living things.
God knows we’re weak, but He gives us strength.

Give thanks to God, for He is so good.
His love is eternal.
His love is eternal.
His love is eternal.

About This Song:
This song comes from various portions of Psalm 136. If you want to add more stanzas, there are plenty of ideas left there to choose from.

One thing that interests me about this Psalm is the way it echoes “His love is eternal” (the phrase differs from translation to translation, of course) after each good thing the Psalmist attributes to God.

One thing I often do before I go to sleep is to try to think about some of the things God has created. But His creations are beyond my knowledge and my ability to count. The old hymn says, “Count your many blessings. Name them one by one.” That’s another of those things I can’t begin to do adequately.

I’m just thankful God is Who He is and loves me enough to make me His child through faith in Jesus Christ. I can’t begin to comprehend that, either, but what a wonderful thing to think about and dwell on.
