Creation sings ....

from our worship service this Sunday morning:

Indescribable
(worship song by Laura Story)

From the highest of heights
to the depths of the sea,
Creation's revealing Your majesty.

From the colors of fall


to the fragrance of spring

Every creature unique in the song that it sings. All exclaiming:

Indescribable,
uncontainable,
You placed the stars in the sky and You know them by name.
You are amazing, God!

All powerful,
untamable,
Awestruck, we fall to our knees as we humbly proclaim,
You are amazing, God!

Who has told every lightning bolt where it should go
Or seen heavenly storehouses laden with snow?


Who imagined the sun and gives source to its light?
Yet conceals it to bring us the coolness of night?
None can fathom....

Indescribable,
uncontainable,
You placed the stars in the sky and You know them by name.
You are amazing, God!

All powerful,
untamable,
Awestruck, we fall to our knees as we humbly proclaim,
You are amazing, God!

Wow, Helen! These are absolutely breathtaking. I LOVE your use of color and composition.

And to see how you worship our Creator with your art is inspiring ... thank you!

(We recently sang this song as an anthem in our church choir ... I love it!)
