“. . .stand still and consider the wondrous works of God.”
When I gaze into the evening sky
And see the stars above,
I see more than lifeless orbs;
I see the Father’s Love.
When I watch a bird winging its way in flight,
Soaring effortlessly on the wind,
I see an expression of the Father’s Grace
Who longs to be my Friend.
When I hear the pounding sea surf on shore
Or the wind whispering quietly in the trees,
I hear the Voice of the Giver of life
Calling—and I fall down on my knees.
“Oh Lord,” I cry from the depths of my soul,
“Why do You love me so?
Your love is higher than the mountains
And deeper than the ocean’s depths below.
“Why do You choose to give such Mercy
When we have done so bad?
Why do You show such endless Grace,
That cheers us when we’re sad?
“When I am still, I hear Your Voice
Calling out so softly to me;
Like the wind in the trees You speak to me
Of how in You I can be free.
“Thank you, O Lord, for all Your wondrous works
Which point us up to You;
May we, like them, glorify You always
In all we say and do.
“To You I surrender all of my life
To use as You think best;
Help me to love You with all of my heart,
For in You my soul finds rest.”
