Steadfast Love


Though I sin, and forget his Name;

He relents,

and loves me the same.

And thus I rise,

praising His Name.


Again and again he rescued them,

but they chose to rebel against him,

and they were finally destroyed by their sin.

Even so, he pitied them in their distress

and listened to their cries.

He remembered his covenant with them

and relented because of his unfailing love.

He even caused their captors

to treat them with kindness.

Save us, O Lord our God!

Gather us back from among the nations,

so we can thank your holy name

and rejoice and praise you.

Praise the Lord, the God of Israel,

who lives from everlasting to everlasting!

Let all the people say, “Amen!”

Praise the Lord!

(Psalm 106:43-48, New Living Translation)
