I sing the mighty power of God

As always I have so much to be thankful for! Often my thanks to God is expressed in song- one song that I have been enjoying singing lately has been "I sing the mighty power of God". It has in it so many things that I am thankful for. I thought I would share it with you today.

"I sing the mighty power of God,
That makes the Mountains rise;
That spread the flowing seas abroad,
and built the lofty skies.

I sing the wisdom that ordained
The sun to rule the day;
The moon shines full at His command,

And all the stars obey.

I sing the goodness of the Lord,
that filled the earth with food;

He formed the creatures with His word,
And then pronounced them good.

Lord, how Thy wonders are displayed,
Where'er I turn my eye:
If I survey the ground I tread,
Or gaze upon the sky!

There's not a plant or flower below,
But makes Thy glories known;

And clouds arise, and tempests blow,
By order from Thy thrown;
While all that borrows life from Thee
Is ever in Thy care,And everywhere that man can be,
Thou, God, art present there.
by Isaac Watts
Words in bold are numbers 120-140 in my gratitude list.
