The Greatness of God

sunrays

I see you in the vast, blue sky,

The sun, the moon, and stars,

The galaxies and Milky Way,

The planets, Earth, and Mars.

 

I hear you in the praises sung

By dove and mockingbird.

You’re everywhere, it’s clear.

From all that you have given me

Your love for me’s most dear.
