He placed the stars in heaven
He called them all by name
He formed them as we see them
They’ll always be the same

Just to make us wonder
He takes one at a time
He makes a supernova
That really does outshine

I have to be real careful
That my light shines just right
I cannot let pride get me
To cause it to shine bright

But if my Lord is leading
And my line should flash high
I must be humbly thankful
And leave Him to decide

It’s not my place to self-promote
Or make myself stand out
I’ll give my God the glory
Whenever my light shouts

A Sweet Life

Some call it circumstances
Some just call it luck
Some say all the stars aligned
Or your just one smart duck

Whatever situation
Whatever comes your way
Others will think it’s just fate
That guided you that day

But i say phooey to all that
I’m not fortuitous
My life has been designed by God
And I am truly blessed

I’m blessed in every trouble
I’m blessed in every test
For my God goes before me
And guides my every step

He has a glorious plan for me
It’s full of love and peace
He’ll bless me every day I live
Any my life will be sweet

My Conclusion

When I think of the fact that water and ice
Are made from two gases that meet and splice
I can’t help but wonder how they first met
And decided their union would be complex

When I think of how stars form a pattern in space
As the wander around from place to place
I can’t help but wonder how it came to be
That they would give guidance to sailors at sea

So many questions have flooded my mind
Of incredible things that have happened through time
I have made the conclusion that satisfies me
There’s a God up in heaven who makes this all be

Our God in heaven sent us His own Son
He died on a cross to redeem everyone
The curse of sin broken by His sacrifice
Death is defeated by eternal life.

Do you live with this incredible gift
Have you accepted what only God gives
Ask Him today to forgive your sins
Then He will pardon and live within

Hunters, Crabs and Bears, Oh My

I have seen the big and little dog
I have seen the hunter’s belt
I’ve seen the crab and the ram
The twins were there as well

Shining high above the sky
In all their astral beauty
I look up and behold their light
I listen to their story

They tell of a creator
Who placed them one by one
They tell of His great glory
They tell me of God’s son

He came down from the heaven’s
To redeem us from our sin
The next time you see that bear
I pray you’ll follow Him

Isn’t It a Wonder

Isn’t it a wonder when the sun slowly sets
The clouds scatter out on display
The glistening light
Forms a beautiful sight
The painting takes my breath away

Isn’t it a wonder that stars roam the sky
Their brilliance is always displayed
The patterns we see
Are truly unique
They remain constant day after day

Isn’t it a wonder that flowers can bloom
From one little seed in the ground
Some water and light
Give them more than just life
When I come close their fragrance is found

Isn’t it a wonder how birds fly so free
Their wings carry them through the sky
Mere feathers and bones
Arranged in a row
They can soar without knowing why

Isn’t it a wonder that I can stand here
When I am but dust of the earth
He formed me by hand
Made me who I am
My make-up has so little worth

Isn’t it a wonder that I can see
I can speak and I even hear
This small pile of dust
Was formed out of trust
That I would praise Him who formed me

Isn’t it a wonder that God would love me
He’s always right there by my side
He still cares for me
Even when I displease
His mercy and grave override

Isn’t it a wonder that God sent His son
To die on a cross for me
When I give Him my life
He will raise me up high
In heaven one day I will be

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

How Big?

Have you ever looked up to the sky in the darkest lonely hours
And seen the brilliant light that travels from those distant stars
Have you wondered what it would be like to go that far
And visit those amazing stars that shine in lonely hours

If we could travel to the moon and back in just one hour
It would take 16 days to travel to this sun of ours
To travel to the nearest star after our sun so far
Would take ten thousand years to travel to the closest star

They say 400 billion stars are in our galaxy
But with our naked eye six thousand’s all we see
With about 100 billion galaxies floating in that sea
we start too realize just how big our God must be

If He could have the mind to create such a wondrous thing
Just thing how marvelous His love to create someone like me
Unique in all my ways now He has made me to be free
To trust in His great love that sent His Son to rescue me

How big is our great God who plans for all the universe
Yet looks down on this simple place of home that we call earth
He takes the time to make us part of His great love and worth
And we can live forever for He’s given us new birth
