Habakkuk 3 :  1-19

A prayer of Habakkuk the prophet. On shigionoth.

2 LORD, I have heard of your fame; 

    I stand in awe of your deeds, LORD.

Repeat them in our day,

    in our time make them known;

    in wrath remember mercy.

3 God came from Teman,

    the Holy One from Mount Paran.

His glory covered the heavens

    and his praise filled the earth.

4 His splendor was like the sunrise;

    rays flashed from his hand,

   where his power was hidden.

5 Plague went before him;

    pestilence followed his steps.

6 He stood, and shook the earth;

    he looked, and made the nations tremble.

The ancient mountains crumbled

    and the age-old hills collapsed—

    but he marches on forever.

7 I saw the tents of Cushan in distress,

    the dwellings of Midian in anguish.

8 Were you angry with the rivers, LORD?

    Was your wrath against the streams?

Did you rage against the sea

    when you rode your horses

    and your chariots to victory?

9 You uncovered your bow,

    you called for many arrows.

    You split the earth with rivers;

10 the mountains saw you and writhed.

    Torrents of water swept by;

    the deep roared

    and lifted its waves on high.

11 Sun and moon stood still in the heavens
    at the glint of your flying arrows,
    at the lightning of your flashing spear.
12 In wrath you strode through the earth
    and in anger you threshed the nations.
13 You came out to deliver your people,
    to save your anointed one.
You crushed the leader of the land of wickedness,
    you stripped him from head to foot.
14 With his own spear you pierced his head
    when his warriors stormed out to scatter us,
gloating as though about to devour
    the wretched who were in hiding.
15 You trampled the sea with your horses,
    churning the great waters.

16 I heard and my heart pounded,
    my lips quivered at the sound;
decay crept into my bones,
    and my legs trembled.
Yet I will wait patiently for the day of calamity
    to come on the nation invading us.
17 Though the fig tree does not bud
    and there are no grapes on the vines,
though the olive crop fails
    and the fields produce no food,
though there are no sheep in the pen
    and no cattle in the stalls,
18 yet I will rejoice in the Lord,
    I will be joyful in God my Savior.

19 The Sovereign Lord is my strength;
    he makes my feet like the feet of a deer,
    he enables me to tread on the heights.


Verse 1

O the deep, deep love of Jesus!
Vast, unmeasured, boundless, free,
Rolling as a mighty ocean
In its fullness over me.
Underneath me, all around me,
Is the current of thy love;
Leading onward, leading homeward,
To thy glorious rest above.


Verse 2

O the deep, deep love of Jesus!
Spread his praise from shore to shore;
How he loveth, ever loveth,
Changeth never, nevermore;
How he watches o'er his loved ones,
Died to call them all his own;
How for them he intercedeth,
Watcheth o'er them from the throne.   

Verse 3

O the deep, deep love of Jesus!
Love of ev'ry love the best:
'Tis an ocean vast of blessing,
'Tis a haven sweet of rest.
O the deep, deep love of Jesus!
'Tis a heav'n of heav'ns to me;
And it lifts me up to glory,
For it lifts me up to thee.   


My soul finds rest in God alone, my rock and my salvation;

A fortress strong against my foes, and I will not be shaken.

Though lips may bless and hearts may curse, and lies like arrows pierce me, 

I'll fix my heart on righteousness; I'll look to him who hears me.



O praise him, hallelujah, my delight and my reward;

Everlasting, never failing, my Redeemer, my God.


Find rest, my soul, in God alone amid the world's temptations;

When evil seeks to take a hold, I'll cling to my salvation.

Though riches come and riches go, don't set your heart upon them;

The fields of hope in which I sow are harvested in heaven.



I'll set my gaze on God alone and trust in him completely;

With every day pour out my soul, and he will prove his mercy.

Though life is but a fleeting breath, a sigh too brief to measure,

My King has crushed the curse of death, and I am his forever.




Verse 1

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!


Verse 2

Summer and winter and springtime and harvest,
Sun, moon, and stars in their courses above
Join with all nature in manifold witness
To thy great faithfulness, mercy, and love.



Verse 3

Pardon for sin and a peace that endureth, 
Thine own dear presence to cheer and to guide, 
Strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow,
Blessings all mine, with ten thousand beside!
