(Nori Kelley)

The lovingkindness of the Lord
Is from everlasting to everlasting
On those who fear Him

You have not dealt with me
According to my sins
Nor have You rewarded me
According to my iniquities

For as high as the heavens are above the earth
So great is Your kindness to me
Just as a father loves his child
So You have compassion on me
As far as the east is from the west
So far has He taken our sins from us
Oh, Lord (oh, Lord)
So great is Your kindness to me

I wrote this around 1997 when we were leading worship at the Vineyard in Gadsden, Alabama. The Psalms are a great starting place for worship songs, and this one's from 103.

I guess there's a lot of stuff on the WA album from the Psalms (I really do read the rest of the Bible!). Since this song had already been done on "Small Town Big God," we were originally going to do it on WA in Japanese only, but decided against it. This recording, along with "Reveal Yourself," includes members of New Life International Church in Yokohama, where we served as worship leaders for nearly 2 years.
