I Stand In Awe


Oh Lord, my heart overflows - with praises to You,
It's just so awesome - the things that You do.
Nothing exists - without Your masterful design,
And all of Your plans - are perfect and fine.

You made everything - in this whole universe,
You are most worthy - of my praise in this verse.
You made mankind - and placed us on earth,
And you blessed each of us - even before our birth.

You've counted the stars - and each grain of sand,
You hold the universe - in the palm of Your hand.
Oh, Lord I live my voice in poetic praise,
And I'll shout hosanna - for the rest of my days.

Lord, You made the green meadows - where animals graze,
And you made beautiful sunsets - on which to gaze.
You sprinkle pretty frost - on the meadow grass,
It sparkles like diamonds - or expensive cut glass.

You can order the snowflakes - either day or night,
To cover the hillsides - with a blanket of white.
You designed big rivers - to go rolling by,
They flow continuously - but they never go dry.

I marvel at the sky - and Your clouds filled with rain,
As I watch the raindrops - on my window pane.
Then when lightening flashes - putting darkness asunder
I praise Your Name - when I hear Your mighty thunder.

For the whole sky lights up - as though it were day,
While I stand in awe - and in helpless dismay.
What a mighty God - what stupendous power,
Lord, you're in control - every moment, every hour.

You control the universe - with Your mighty hand,
All the elements obey - your every command.
Each time I'm in need - I call on Your Name
and You touch me in a way - that I'm never the same.

For You've provided comfort - when my heart was breaking,
You have plenty of assistance - that's mine for my taking.
You always forgive me - when I humbly request,
Oh, I'm such a weak sinner - I feel like a pest.

You love me so much more - then I can even comprehend,
and You're always with me - Oh, true and faithful friend.
You're worthy of my praise - from morning till night,
and Your glorious face - shall never leave my sight.

For my heart is overflowing - with joy and thanksgiving,
and I'll praise You continually - as long as I'm living.
