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
