He Gave the Trees

I can look in awesome wonder
At the miracle of nature
Knowing flowers grow from tiny little seeds,
And that season after season
When the petals bloom in splendor
The whole cycle is entrusted to the bees

I can marvel at the way the leaves
Are changed to brilliant colors
As they slowly fall upon the frosty ground
But I’ll never understand the man
Who looks at all this master plan
And insists that proof of God cannot be found

He gave the trees
To color His creation.
He gave the stars
To brighten up the sky
He gave us senses
To enjoy each wonder he has made.
Who am I to doubt He’s there,
Who am I

With our eyes we see the brilliance
Of the bright stars in the heavens
As their light glows from a distance far away
With our ears we hear the chirping
Of a bird so sweetly singing
In a melody that’s far beyond compare

With our nose we smell the fresh rain
And our mouths enjoy the sweet grain
That the earth brings forth on each and every day
But it’s hard to understand a man
Whose body holds this master plan
And insists that God’s not with us day to day

He gave the trees
Tto color His creation.
He gave the stars
To brighten up the sky
He gave us senses
To enjoy each wonder he has made
Who am I
To doubt His wondrous plan
That was formed
By the master’s hand
And given from above to man
Who am I

If you’ll open up your eyes and ears
You’ll see Him as he draws you near
And hear His gentle voice say
I Love you

He Does

Who names the stars one by one
Who tames the wind and lights the sun
Who calms the sea when storms rage on
He does

Who sounds the thunder for all to hear
Who brings the dawn for birds to cheer
Who adorns earth with flowers to wear
He does

Almighty God creator
Ruler of heaven and earth
All that He does
Displays His great love
Lift up your praise
All of your days
Tell all the world what He does

Who sees your tears and wipes them away
Who hears your words when you silently pray
Who walks beside you by night and by day
He does

Who heals your wounds and eases your pain
Who brings you peace when turmoil rains
Who lifts our faith so doubt can’t remain
He does

He came to earth to set us free
Gave His life on Calvary
Rose to life and victory
All for you all for me

Who forgives sin and shows us sweet grace
Who showers mercy and to all who obey
Who loves us more than words can say
He does

Almighty God creator
Ruler of heaven and earth
All that He does
Displays His great love
Lift up your praise
All of your days
Tell all the world what He does
Just praise Him!

Marvel

Grass dusted with dew
Dawn coming in view
Stars glittering bright
Moon absent from light

Birds greeting the day
Leaves falling like rain
Breeze gentle and cool
Freeze coming real soon

Marvel at His creation
Wonder that’s ever-changing
One day differs from others
All as a gift from the author

Precious each passing moment
Our job to be a witness
All who love this creation
Need to know their situation

Heaven or hell does await them
Their choice determines the outcome
Choose Christ and His wondrous mercy
Or fall to the depths of pure misery

He’ll make you a new creation
When you give Him your life without caution
Repent of your sin
Ask Jesus in
He’ll build you a mansion in heaven

Marvel at His creation
He’s made you an heir to His glory
Love, peace, joy and hope
Will fill up your home
As you tell His marvelous story

You Are Amazing

This was one of the first full songs I wrote back in 2011, and is still one of my favorites.  The link at the bottom is to my video recording of the song..

I can see the birds fly
I can see the trees wave.
I can see the clouds roll by in splendor
I can see the sun rise
I can see the star shine
So how can I not see your majesty

You are amazing
You take my breath away.
So Amazing.
I marvel every day
Oh Lord Open up my heart
And show me how amazing you are

I can hear the bird sing
I can hear the north wind
I can hear the lightning clap with thunder
I can hear the wave crash
I can hear the rain splash
So how can I not hear when you call to me

You are amazing
You take my breath away.
So Amazing.
I marvel every day
Oh Lord Open up my heart
And show me how amazing you are

Every day through all me senses
You are calling out to me
Hoping to get through so that I’ll
Know that you’re in love with me
All that you desire
Is just to walk with me
Lord, Open up my heart,
Please open up my heart

I can feel the snow flake
I can feel the earth quake
I can feel the summer heat surround me
I can feel the wind blow
I can feel the stream flow
So how can I not feel your love to me

You are amazing
You take my breath away.
So Amazing.
I marvel every day
Oh Lord Open up my heart
And show me how amazing you are

You Are Amazing

The Most Amazing Thing

I serve the God who put all the stars in place
He stretched out all the heavens and set the bounds of space
He even put the smile on the moon man’s face
The God I serve can do most anything

I serve the God who taught the morning birds to sing
The spider learned to spin his web the bee learned he could sting
The leaves learned changing color would autumn beauty bring
The God I serve can do most anything

His wisdom fills the heavens
His glory lines the clouds
His beauty can be seen day after daycreation
When you look up to heaven
You’ll see His handiwork
With wonder and with awe you’ll be amazed

I serve the God who started with an earth devoid of life
He told the light to shine and the water to arrive
He grew the trees and grasses so the beasts would all survive
The God I serve can do most anything

Then He formed a man out of the dust that covered earth
He breathed in him the breath of life which gave his spirit birth
God gave dominion to the man to show him his great worth
The God I serve can do most anything

His wisdom fills the heavens
His glory lines the clouds
His beauty can be seen day after day
When you look up to heaven
You’ll see His handiwork
With wonder and with awe you’ll be amazed

But man would disappoint Him, and disobey His plan
He sinned a sin what would be passed along to every man
God had to find a way to restore this earth again
The God I serve can do most anything

He sent His Son to earth to rescue all of us from sin
He died upon the cross to give us joy and peace within
He made us all a heavenly home when He rose again
The God I serve can do most anything

With all the wonders He has made
With all the miracles He gave
The most amazing thing he did
Was die to set me free

His wisdom fills the heavens
His glory lines the clouds
His beauty can be seen day after day
When you look up to heaven
You’ll see His handiwork
With wonder and with awe you’ll be amazed

Glorious Indeed

I walked out this morning to a silent peaceful night
Up above my head I saw the stars that shone so bright
The crickets chirping softly sang a tune that let me know
They praised the one who reigned on high and sat upon the throne

And as I walked in wonder I can feel his presence near
The night air was so calm there were many sounds to hear
As I put it all together I just stood in awe
This glorious creation was a testament to God

Glorious creation glorious indeed
I look up to the heavens He adorned
His glory they proclaim
So I lift up His name
To join the heavenly chorus of the Lord

All that I have was given by His grace so undeserved
He saved me from my sin with His mercy and His Word
When I look at the stars I am reminded of the day
That Jesus came and rescued me from all my sinful ways

Glorious creation glorious indeed
I look up to the heavens He adorned
His glory they proclaim
So I lift up His name
To join the heavenly chorus of the Lord

He didn’t have to leave His throne
He didn’t have to save us
He didn’t have to die an ugly death
He did it so we’d know His love
He did it so we’d look above
He did it to have fellowship with us

Glorious creation glorious indeed
I look up to the heavens He adorned
His glory they proclaim
So I lift up His name
To join the heavenly chorus of the Lord

Before The Mountains Rose

Before the mountains rose
Before the valley low
Before the starry night
Before the bird took flight
Before the raging sea
Before the west and east
Before our world was made
The angels sang your praise

I will give you praise with all my heart
I will give you praise with all my soul
With all my strength with all my might
I lift my hands to you
I will give you praise
I will give you praise

Before the universe
Before this place called earth
Before the storm clouds rolled
Before the heat and cold
Before the seasons changed
Before the beasts were named
Before man roamed this place
The angles gave you praise

I will give you praise with all my heart
I will give you praise with all my soul
With all my strength and all my might
I lift my hands to you
I will give you praise
I will give you praise

Before I knew you I was lost in sin
Before I asked the Savior to come in
Before I was so lost, but now you guide my way
And forever more I will give you praise

I will give you praise with all my heart
I will give you praise with all my soul
With all my strength with all my might
I lift my hands to you
I will give you praise
I will give you praise

I was given this today and also have the melody for it running through my head. I hope to get it up on my YouTube channel in the next day or two and will post it when I do. My YouTube channel is HERE

Creation Testifies

In all the world around me
I see His loving hand
I know He’s watching over me
He surveys this great land

I love to hear the birds
As they sing their praises high
I love to see the trees
As they lift their branches high

I love to feel the wind
His spirit whisking by
I love to see the stars
So majestic in the sky

All to bring His praises
To lift His name up high
All to bring Him glory
His creation testifies

When I behold this symphony
Of praise to Christ our Lord
I just have to lift my voice
To the one that I adore

Praise His name, His mighty name
The glorious name of Jesus
Praise His name, His matchless name
Jesus Christ the Lord

Sing His praises loud and clear
Cause your voice to shout and cheer
Sing it out so all will hear
That Jesus Christ is Lord

Praise His name, His mighty name
The glorious name of Jesus
Praise His name, His matchless name
Jesus Christ the Lord

The Eye of the Sky

It dawns on creation

I watch
As wispy clouds
Dust the pre-dawn sky
With grey

Suddenly
A splash of pink
Announces an expected event

The pink turns
Into soft yellow
And gold begins to gild
The clouds

Brilliant gold
Encasing several yellow shapes
While bright red
And orange
Spread to clouds
Seemingly a distant
Ways off

Now the gilding subsides
Light starts to illuminate
The sky
And the eye
Of the sky
Starts creeping high

Brighter
And brighter
Welcoming
The new day
