In Awe

In Awe

“The heavens declare the glory of God;
And the firmament shows His handiwork.” (Psalm 19:1)


No matter where you go you cannot escape the glory of God.

It is even in those things we sometimes take for granted…
 

even as the wind moves i can hear Your name

its warmth caresses me
and i’m sure that if i could interpret its quiet whisper
it would be singing Your praise like a lullaby.

even as the waves sway i can see them reach for You

they wash over my feet
and i’m sure that if i could swim its length and breadth
i could never escape Your love.

even as the clouds roll i can sense the angels

they kneel at Your throne
and i’m sure that if i could stop them covering the sun
i could never shield Your glory.

even as i stand here i can feel Your holiness

it surrounds my every being
and i’m sure that if i was standing here in one million years time
i would still be in awe of You.
