His Mercy Endures Forever (Psalm 136)

1 Oh, give thanks to the LORD, for He is good!
For His mercy endures forever.

2 Oh, give thanks to the God of gods!
For His mercy endures forever.

3 Oh, give thanks to the Lord of lords!
For His mercy endures forever:

4 To Him who alone does great wonders,
For His mercy endures forever;

5 To Him who by wisdom made the heavens,
For His mercy endures forever;

6 To Him who laid out the earth above the waters,
For His mercy endures forever;

7 To Him who made great lights,
For His mercy endures forever—

8 The sun to rule by day,
For His mercy endures forever;

9 The moon and stars to rule by night,
For His mercy endures forever.

10 To Him who struck Egypt in their firstborn,
For His mercy endures forever;

11 And brought out Israel from among them,
For His mercy endures forever;

12 With a strong hand, and with an outstretched arm,
For His mercy endures forever;

13 To Him who divided the Red Sea in two,
For His mercy endures forever;

14 And made Israel pass through the midst of it,
For His mercy endures forever;

15 But overthrew Pharaoh and his army in the Red Sea,
For His mercy endures forever;

16 To Him who led His people through the wilderness,
For His mercy endures forever;

17 To Him who struck down great kings,
For His mercy endures forever;

18 And slew famous kings,
For His mercy endures forever—

19 Sihon king of the Amorites,
For His mercy endures forever;

20 And Og king of Bashan,
For His mercy endures forever—

21 And gave their land as a heritage,
For His mercy endures forever;

22 A heritage to Israel His servant,
For His mercy endures forever.

23 Who remembered us in our lowly state,
For His mercy endures forever;

24 And rescued us from our enemies,
For His mercy endures forever;

25 Who gives food to all flesh,
For His mercy endures forever.

26 Oh, give thanks to the God of heaven!
For His mercy endures forever.

Devotional Reading

Mrs. Hattie Hollowell is known as “The Forgotten Woman of New York City.” She spent three years, four months and sixteen days in jail without a member of her family, a friend or an attorney visiting her.

When she was finally “discovered,” an investigation revealed that she had never been brought to trial. Instead of being helped, she was forgotten and ignored by “the system.” When she finally was discovered, the legal machinery moved swiftly to release her.

Others may forget and ignore us, but not the Lord. In Psalm 136:23 we read, “He remembered us in our low estate and weaknesses. His faithful love endures forever.”

One day Jesus was teaching a group of followers. He wanted to get them involved in his lesson, so He asked, “What is the price of five sparrows?” Then, He answered his question by saying, “A couple of pennies? Not much more than that.” He continued, “And yet God does not forget a single one of them. And He even knows the number of hairs on your head. In fact, He knows all about you – your weaknesses, your wants, and even your worries. And never forget that He cares for every one of you!”

If a little bird is the object of His love, how much more does He love each one of us, no matter who or what or where we are. We may be forsaken by our family and friends, but not the Lord. He remembers us in our “low estate,” and His faithful love endures forever.

Jesus promised, “Remember, I am always with you!”

Prayer: We thank You, Father, for the promise of Your presence and the fact that Your love for us will never end. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
