Grace Both Day and Night

It's been a long day, even with the extra hour, as my husband and I travelled out of town to visit a desperately ill loved one.  It's nights like this that make me appreciative of this verse from Proverbs.  I know I've chosen this song before for my blog, but I'll choose it again, as it was what was in my heart and mind when I awoke this morning.  
He Giveth More Grace
He giveth more grace as our burdens grow greater,
He sendeth more strength as our labors increase;
To added afflictions He addeth His mercy,
To multiplied trials He multiplies peace.
When we have exhausted our store of endurance,
When our strength has failed ere the day is half done,
When we reach the end of our hoarded resources
Our Father’s full giving is only begun.
Fear not that thy need shall exceed His provision,
Our God ever yearns His resources to share;
Lean hard on the arm everlasting, availing;
The Father both thee and thy load will upbear.
His love has no limits, His grace has no measure,
His power no boundary known unto men;
For out of His infinite riches in Jesus
He giveth, and giveth, and giveth again.

Annie Johnson Flint, writer, "He Giveth More Grace"
