The Lord Is Great
Our Lord is great and has awesome power; there is no limit to his wisdom. Psalm 147.5 NET.
The Lord is great and worthy of praise,
More awesome than all the gods of man.
The nations’ useless gods are lies;
God made the sky with his powerful hand.
Higher than the heavens is he,
His thoughts exalted in the heights;
His words are power, the enemies flee,
He puts my inner world to rights.
No mind can fathom God’s expanse
And less his love which takes in all;
It’s not by fate we’re here, nor chance,
The Cross his answer to the Fall.
Before all time and man’s unrest,
God planned the way for his return:
His Son’s own life would he invest
To save the willing — the rest would burn.
