New Every Morning


Lamentations 3
*
22 It is of the LORD's mercies
that we are not consumed,
because his compassions fail not.
23 They are new every morning:
great is thy faithfulness.
*
24 The LORD is my portion, saith my soul;
therefore will I hope in him.
25 The LORD is good unto them that wait for him,
to the soul that seeketh him.
26 It is good that a man should both hope
and quietly wait for the salvation of the LORD.
*
31 For the LORD will not cast off for ever:
32 But though he cause grief,
yet will he have compassion
according to the multitude of his mercies.
*
40 Let us search and try our ways,
and turn again to the LORD.
41 Let us lift up our heart with our hands
unto God in the heavens.
*
55 I called upon thy name, O LORD,
out of the low dungeon.
56 Thou hast heard my voice:
hide not thine ear at my breathing, at my cry.
57 Thou drewest near
in the day that I called upon thee:
thou saidst, Fear not.
58 O LORD, thou hast pleaded the causes of my soul;
thou hast redeemed my life.
