New Words

typewriter-1170657_1920

What can I write about the LORD,
No one has thought or said?
There must be new words I can sleuth,
Unknown within my head.

I know the canon has been closed,
No scripture comes through me,
Yet is there more praise I can give,
Before eternity?

Spirit inspire and guide me through,
Deep mysteries divine,
Then show my hands the keys to type,
And clues I should combine.

Reveal a prayer or simple phrase,
Unused upon this earth,
Construct the pieces I must write,
In poetry and verse.

All Creation Sings

The fields wave, the waters roar,
Making joyful noises to our Lord,
The mountains rising from the sea,
And they’re pointing to His majesty.

And You have done such marvelous things.

Hallelujah, for Your glory,
All creation sings to You.
Hallelujah, for Your glory,
All creation sings to You, sings to You.

The image of a holy God,
With His fingerprints on each of us,
Created by Him, so wondrously,
And we’re pointing to His majesty.

The power of God in a glorious display
The beauty of heavens yet unseen
There’s no excuse to bring.

Our hearts of stone were dead and cold,
Until quickened by our sovereign Lord.
New life raising from sin set free,
And we’re pointing to His majesty.

For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse. (Romans 1:19-20 ESV)

Infinite Otherness

Before the first morning,
Before an angel could fly,
Further than the mind can go,
Further than the mind can go,
You were there, You were there,
In splendor and light.

Self-Existing, Otherness,
The Almighty, Infinite,
In Your glory, Infinite,
Infinite in holiness,
In holiness.

Long before creation,
You sang a melody unknown,
A timeless chorus of love,
A timeless chorus of love,
Filling the air, filling the air,
Around Your throne.

And when creation’s time had come,
A new song spilled from Your tongue,
Then You came, O Infinite.

Behind the lines

Remember this and stand firm, recall it to mind, you transgressors, 9 remember the former things of old; for I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is none like me, 10 declaring the end from the beginning and from ancient times things not yet done, saying, ‘My counsel shall stand, and I will accomplish all my purpose (Isaiah 46:8–10 ESV).
