Creation

Oh Lord, I gaze around me, at this world laid at my feet,

My eyes just astound me with the beauty of all I see.

But most thrilling to my heart, with this creation so complete,

In the midst of all there is, You made a place for me.

 

What words can hope to capture the essence of what You are?

Your grace defies imagination. Your wisdom outshines the stars.

I see Your will running through it all, like waves rippling the sea,

And still I marvel that such widespread love can still provide for me.

I thank you Lord for the sunshine, I thank you for the rain.

I thank you for my salvation that takes away my pain.

I thank you for this shelter and the food I have to eat,

I thank you for this gift of life, and your love ever so sweet.

‚Äč

And yet, despite the wonder of it all, I know I wouldn't survive

Without your cleansing forgiveness that's keeping me alive.

I'll never understand how the selfishness of man exists in the shadow of your love.

How so many people refuse to see you, and reject the sacrifice of your dove.

 

But through it all, You never waiver, or take back your gift of life.

And that, my God, I cherish most of all, my guiding light through human strife.

 

I thank you Lord for the sunshine, I thank you for the rain.

I thank you for my salvation that takes away my pain.

I thank you for this shelter and the food I have to eat,

I thank you for this gift of life, and your love ever so sweet.
