oh Lord!

you have given me this great big world

mine and all for me

in which to celebrate your love

such wonder is too magnificent for me

I cannot consider your greatness

it is so far beyond my grasp

that I ponder at the fringes of your glory

and am overwhelmed

 

truly you are great

and greatly to be praised

 

In Psalm 119 David wrote:

 

“The earth is filled with your love,

O LORD; teach me your decrees.” (64)

 

and:

 

“Your word, O LORD, is eternal;

it stands firm in the heavens.” (89)

 

How can any not celebrate the Lord

who is shown in all this wonder?
