New Every Day


(©2010 Deborah Bolack)

Oh.. gracious is our Lord...., and blessed be his name.
Holy in all his works...., and righteous in all his ways.
Great is our.. Lord, and greatly to be praised.
His compassions never fail. They're new every day.

New every day.
                              (new every day)
New every day.
New mercies every morning,
fall like dew by God's grace.
New every day.
                               (new every day)
New every day.
God's compassions, his.... mercies are new every day.


God upholds me when I fall..... lifts me up when I'm bowed down,
opens up his.. hand.....there satisfaction is found.
Faithful is our Lord..... extending his great grace.
His compassions never fail, they're new every day.

New every day.
                              (new every day)
New every day.
New mercies every morning,
fall like dew by God's grace.
New every day.
                             (new every day)
New every day.
God's compassions, his mercies are new every day.


New every day.
                              (new every day)
New every day.
God's compassions, his mercies are new every day.

Lamentaions 3:22, 23 It is of the Lord's mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.

Psalm 145:3 Great is the Lord and greatly to be praised; and his greatness is unsearchable.
Psalm 145:8 The Lord is gracious, and full of compassion, slow to anger, and of great mercy.
Psalm 145:14The Lord upholdeth all that fall, and raiseth up all those that be bowed down.
Psalm 145:16Thou openest thine hand, and satisfiest the desire of every living thing.
Psalm 145:17The Lord is righteous in all his ways, and holy in all his works.


I was reading in Psalm 145 one day, and so many verses jumped out at me that I had to write them into a song. At first, I thought verse 1 was the chorus, but it just wasn't coming together, then two other verses in Lamentations came to me and I knew I had the chorus. I fiddled around with a couple of different sounds for the melody, and then set it aside. A few days later, I sat down at the piano and started plunking out a new melody, and I knew right away it was the one for this song.

  1. Good for you, Deb. I wish you would take some piano lessons. I was reading a songwriter's book that said we need to play an instrument. But you are getting many things done better than I am. It sounds wonderful.

  2. Thanks Cathy! I do play an instrument...it's called the computer! hehehe
    My fingers are way too short to learn piano at this point in life...trying to play the chords leaves them aching for days....guitar hurts too!
    I'll settle for playing enough to figure out the melody, and leave the real playing for others!
