An Enduring Love Like No Other

Last night before bed I decided I wanted to read a Psalm or two. I opened my New Testament, Psalms, and Proverbs that sits next to my bed and opened it randomly to the Psalm section. What I landed on was Psalm 136. Its repetition of the phrase “His faithful love endures forever” reminded me of the song Your Love Endures by Third Day. I wanted to share it today for Music Monday, and I found this video of it, with lyrics written in Spanish.

My favorite line of this song is “I know it’s true. I’ve seen it myself. Your love endures forever.” The love of God does endure forever. It began before time itself and it will outlast all else.

And here are my favorite verses from Psalm 136:

1 Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good!
His faithful love endures forever.

 * * * * *
4 Give thanks to him who alone does mighty miracles.
His faithful love endures forever.
5 Give thanks to him who made the heavens so skillfully.
His faithful love endures forever.
6 Give thanks to him who placed the earth among the waters.
His faithful love endures forever.
7 Give thanks to him who made the heavenly lights—
His faithful love endures forever.
8 the sun to rule the day,
His faithful love endures forever.
9 and the moon and stars to rule the night.
His faithful love endures forever.

* * * * *
23 He remembered us in our weakness.
His faithful love endures forever.
24 He saved us from our enemies.
His faithful love endures forever.
25 He gives food to every living thing.
His faithful love endures forever.
26 Give thanks to the God of heaven.
His faithful love endures forever.
