Sing of His Mercy

This past Sunday at church we had a responsive reading based on Psalm 136. Psalm 136 is probably one of the first Psalms that really stuck with me when I accepted Christ as my Lord and Savior. Every verse in this particular Psalm ends with "His mercy endures forever." Spurgeon comments on this repeated line:

"His Mercy Endures Forever. We shall have this repeated in every verse of this song, but not once too often. It is the sweetest stanza that a man can sing. What joy that there is mercy, mercy with Jehovah, enduring mercy, mercy for ever. We are ever needing it, trying it, praying for it, receiving it: therefore let us for ever sing of it."
