Waves of Majesty
Gazing on the Splendor You have placed before me.
Captured by the churning power, my eyes delight.
How can one doubt Your existence?
Your Presence weighs heavy .
You have set the boundaries on this forceful body.
You alone coax these waters…
Waves leaping, waters dancing,
Your breath stirs them and they respond joyfully!
Each creature within it’s depths there at Your request,
By Your design and desire.
How amazing Lord is Your creation.
How awesome are You, it’s Creator!
A glimpse of the power amassing before me;
A mere foreshadowing of Your true greatness.
An exhibition of Your magnificence,
Only a tiny example of Your Power, Your Might!
You surround us with Your beauty and favor.
Entice us with Your majesty and goodness.
Bidding us to come, quiet ourselves,
Be lavished by Your Presence.
Will we be persuaded?
Heed Your soft persistent call?
Wisdom to seek Your refuge;
And joy, peace and love behold.
Let the loyal followers of the Lord say, “Yes, his loyal love endures!” In my distress I cried out to the Lord. The Lord answered me and put me in a wide open place. The Lord is on my side, I am not afraid! What can people do to me? It is better to take shelter in the Lord than to trust in people. It is better to take shelter in the Lord than to trust in princes. The Lord gives me strength and protects me; he has become my deliverer.” They celebrate deliverance in the tents of the godly. The Lord ’s right hand conquers, the Lord ’s right hand gives victory, the Lord ’s right hand conquers. I will not die, but live, and I will proclaim what the Lord has done. I will give you thanks, for you answered me, and have become my deliverer. The stone which the builders discarded has become the cornerstone. This is the Lord ’s work. We consider it amazing! This is the day the Lord has brought about. We will be happy and rejoice in it. (Psalms 118:4-6, 8, 9, 14-17, 21-24 NET)
