*655 God Is Great

O Mighty God - when I observe the wonder
Of Nature's wealth created by your power
I see the clouds - the lightning and the thunder
Ensuing storm and sweet refreshing shower.

When I observe the Universe's vastness
The countless stars that fill the evening sky
Where Sun and Moon keep watch uopn the fastness
Of chaning seasons - as the days go by.

When through deep woods and forest glades I wander
A hear the birds all singing in the trees
I stand in awe of lofty mountain grandeur
With rushing falls and lakes of tranquil ease.

The Scriptures tell the record of your blessing
So freely given to all the human race
Your constant Mercy - all our needs addressing
Forgiving sin and weakness by your Grace.

And when at last - the mists of time have vanished
You will redeem what now we dimly see
Through Heaven's gates - where eartly ills are banished
We'll enter in for all Eternity.

Then sings my soul - O Mighty God to you
How great you are - How great you are
Sustaining everything in view
How great you are - How great you are
We'll spend eternity with you
How great you are - How great you are.

Adapted form the Swedish poem 'O STORE GUD' written in 1886.

Then sings my soul - O Mighty God to you How great you are - How great you are This is a real exceptional piece, John, dedicated to the Creator. The words are very well selected to express your true feelings, especially your own personal style of writing.You need to contemplate the nature, which is an indestructible link between you and Him. God bless Mari
