You do all things well

These lyrics are on my mind tonight, they express something very dear to me. I have always found the beauty of creation a very direct path to worship, to me, ever since I was a small child, the loveliness of clouds and stars and flowers and waters shouts aloud the glory of its maker. I remember as a young teenager struggling to write a poem of which I can now remember only a fragment: 'I believe there is a God / Because the grass looks greener in the rain.' OK, it made sense to me (and still does!) So these chris Tomlin lyrics are speaking my language:

You do All Things Well - by Chris Tomlin
Mountain maker
Ocean tamer
Glimpses of You
Burn in my eyes
The worship of heaven
Fills up the skies

You made it all
Said, "let there be"
And there was
All that we see
The sound of Your voice
The works of Your hands
You do all things well
You do all things well
You do all things well

Star creator
Wind breather
The strokes of Your beauty
Brushed through the clouds
Light from the heavens
Touching the ground

Imagination runs wild
And breathes the breath of life
Across the fields
Across the miles
