We marvel at Your mighty works,
At all Your hand has done,
We cannot comprehend them all
Or count them one by one.
Your grace is higher than the stars,
And deeper than the sea;
Your truth and mercy crown each day –
They last eternally.
Your kindness reaches us in ways
So small and personal,
Because You know us each by name –
You care for each and all.
Your love is boundless as displayed
In giving us Your Son,
To save us from the death we earn
By all the sins we’ve done.
Your wisdom is unsearchable:
If You could be a fool,
Your foolishness would far surpass
Our wisest thought or school.
Your righteousness is beautiful,
No blemishes appear,
For You are perfect, holy, good –
Your ways inspire our fear.
Your strength is stronger than the world
Arrayed against You, Lord.
All else assembled pales before
The power of Your Word.
Your majesty is far beyond
What we can comprehend;
We worship You in reverent awe
When we can’t understand.
Your brightness is a burning flame,
Yet stooping down to speak to us
You are beyond our highest thoughts,
We can’t attain to You;
But we can worship, love, and fear
Our God each day anew.
