I believe the psalmist repeats the words because he is making a point to say how God’s love endures forever. God loves us so much and I dont think we always understand how much he loves us. His love is powerful that is infinite, it will never run out! I pray that I can show God how much I love him through obeying his word and pleasing him through sharing the Gospel and giving to those in need.

The fact that God is good is fundamental to all that He is and does. His love and mercy will never run out and we should always be giving Him praise and thanksgiving.
The past, present, or future will not end His love or mercy.
