He's Been Faithful for 49 Years!

Forty-nine years ago today I made my debut on Planet Earth. Like everyone, I've had my share of dangers, toils and snares, but I am a grateful man. Although I often complain, I count my blessings. God's been good to me, and Jesus has never failed.

He's Been Faithful

In my moments of fear
Through every pain, every tear
There's a God who's been faithful to me
When my strength was all gone
When my heart had no song
Still in love He's proved faithful to me
Every word He's promised is true
What I thought was impossible
I see my God do.

When my heart looked away
The many times I could not pray
Still my God, He was faithful to me
The days I spent so selfishly
Reaching out for what pleased me
Even then God was faithful to me
Every time I come back to Him
He's waiting with open arms and I see once again

He's been faithful, faithful to me
Looking back, His love and mercy I see
Though in my heart, I have questioned
Even failed to believe
Yet He's been faithful, faithful to me.
