Oh Lord, my heart overflows – with praises to You.
It’s just so awesome – the things that You do.
Nothing exists – without Your masterful design.
And all of Your plans – are perfect and fine.
You made everything – in this whole universe
You are most worthy – of my praise in this verse.
You made mankind – and placed us on earth
and you blessed each one of us – even before our birth.
You’ve counted the stars – and each grain of sand.
You hold the universe – in the palm of Your hand.
Oh, Lord I lift my voice – in poetic praise
and I’ll shout hosanna – for the rest of my days.
Lord, You made the green meadows – where animals graze.
And You made beautiful sunsets – on which to gaze.
You sprinkle pretty frost – on the meadow grass
it sparkles like diamonds – or expensive cut glass.
You can order the snowflakes – either day or night
to cover the hillsides – with a blanket of white.
You designed big rivers – to go rolling by
They flow continuously – but they never go dry.
I marvel at the sky – and Your clouds filled with rain
as I watch the rain drops – on my window pane.
Then when lightening flashes – putting darkness asunder
I praise Your Name – when I hear Your mighty thunder,
for the whole sky lights up – as though it were day
While I stand in awe – and in helpless dismay.
What a mighty God – what stupendous power
Lord, you’re in control – every moment, every hour.
You control the universe – with Your mighty hand
All the elements obey – Your every command.
Each time I’m in need – I call on Your Name
and You touch me in a way – that I’m never the same.
For You’ve provided comfort – when my heart was breaking:
You have plenty of assistance – that’s mine for my taking.
You always forgive me – when I humbly request:
Oh, I’m such weak sinner – I feel like a pest.
You love me so much more – than I can even comprehend
and You’re always with me – Oh, true and faithful Friend.
You’re worthy of my praise – from morning till night
and Your glorious face – shall never leave my sight.
For my heart is overflowing – with joy and thanksgiving
and I’ll praise You continually – as long as I’m living.
