Thank you LORD for your gentleness
In the presence of my harshness
For your grace to cover my lawless
Thank you for new beginnings LORD
Each blessing you give – each tear
You wipe from my eyes praises
Your unwavering love

Psalm 18:35 – The Bible (KJV) – Thou hast also given me the shield of thy salvation: and thy right hand hath held me up, and thy gentleness hath made me great.
Jeremiah 31:3 – The Bible (KJV) – The LORD hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with loving kindness have I drawn thee.
Lamentations 3:22-26 – The Bible (KJV) – 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. The LORD is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in him. The LORD is good unto them that wait for him, to the soul that seeketh him. It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the LORD.
Psalm 116:5-9 – The Bible (KJV) – Gracious is the LORD, and righteous; yea, our God is merciful. The LORD preserves the simple: I was brought low, and he helped me. Return unto thy rest, O my soul; for the LORD hath dealt bountifully with thee. For thou hast delivered my soul from death, mine eyes from tears, and my feet from falling. I will walk before the LORD in the land of the living.
1 John 1:9 – The Bible (KJV) – If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
