great love

Because of the Lord's great love 
we are not consumed, 
for his compassions never fail. 
They are new every morning; 
great is your faithfulness. 
I say to myself, "The Lord is my portion; 
therefore I will wait for him."
The Lord is good to those whose hope is in him, 
to the one who seeks him; 
it is good to wait quietly 
for the salvation of the Lord.
