"The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases;
   his mercies never come to an end;
they are new every morning;
    great is your faithfulness."

-Lamentations 3:22-23

New : having recently come into existence
: being other than the former or old
a : beginning as the resumption or repetition of a previous act or thing
 b : made or become fresh
: different from one of the same category that has existed previously

His mercies are amazing. Both new and yet continuing from the old, a fresh start at the beginning of each day. He gives us fresh, new, mercies. We will never come to the end of them. Nothing His children can do will drain His mercies. No circumstance we face can wear out His compassion, no continuing struggle or battle on our part. "New mercies" seems to emphasize that when we face crisis after crisis, He will always give us mercy after mercy, compassion after compassion. We will always be discovering the unplumbed depths of His love for us.
