Multilingual Great Is Thy Faithfulness



As Thanksgiving approaches this year, something that I (James) did in a multicultural church for a Thanksgiving Eve service is sing the popular hymn "Great Is Thy Faithfulness" in a few different languages, with the help of fluent speakers on my worship team. We sang it in Spanish and French along with English. In what other languages can you sing this hymn?


Great is thy faithfulness, O God my Father;

there is no shadow of turning with thee;

Thou changest not, thy compassions, they fail not;

as thou hast been thou forever wilt be.


Great is thy faithfulness! Great is thy faithfulness!

Morning by morning new mercies I see;

all I have needed thy hand hath provided.

Great is thy faithfulness, Lord, unto me!


(Spanish)

La noche oscura, el sol y la luna,

las estaciones del año también,

Unen su canto cual fieles criaturas,

porque eres bueno, por siempre eres fiel.


(French)

Ta joie et Ton pardon abondance,

Ta présence en mon cœur,

Ta chaude voix, Ta force à chaque pas,

Ton espérance, Par Ta fidélité, tout est à moi.
