The mercy of the Lord endures forever

Because we hear the sentence so frequently repeated here, that "the mercy of the Lord endureth for ever," we are not to think that the Holy Spirit has employed empty tautology, but our great necessity demands it: for in temptations and dangers the flesh begins to doubt of the mercy of God; therefore nothing should be so frequently impressed on the mind as this, that the mercy of God does not fail, that the Eternal Father wearies not in remitting our sins. 
Solomon Gesner, quoted in Charles Spurgeon's The Treasury of David, in the notes on Psalm 118, verses 1-4.  The paragraph originally comes most likely from Gesner's Disquisitions on the Psalter.
