Scripture: Jeremiah 32:17
1 Rise up, all things that God has made. Come praise your Maker's glory!
Each tiny leaf, each grassy blade Proclaims a wondrous story!
2 Though all the kings of earth can show Their utmost strength and power,
They cannot make a leaflet grow; Nor mend a broken flower!
3 The smallest leaf that God has made Can break a stone asunder.
Where can I find the words to praise Or tell their Maker's wonder?
4 What shall I say, where are the words To praise God's great creation:
The teeming woods, the winged birds, The glorious constellations?
5 What shall I say when I look up, Into the starry heavens?
At every turn my thoughts are stopped By all the stars we're given.
6 What shall I say when I behold The stars in countless numbers
And see their smiling charms unfold, While nature sweetly slumbers?
7 What shall I say when I'll arise To view my God before me
And view the hosts of angels fly In shining troops of glory?
8 What shall I say? Weak are my words And humble my opinion.
How great thy wisdom, Lord of lords, Thy might and thy dominion!
