Beyond the Wonder
Beyond the wonder of present awe
of morning sunrise heights
Beyond the miracles of present life
The majestic glory of God
shines with joy that fully delights.
What beauty remains to thrill my heart?
I have no way to know
This taste of heaven delights my soul
with its lavish overflow
Revealing a bit of glory here below.
His divine Word is wholly perfect
Not a hint of duress
Ancient truth fills me fully
The Words illumined by His Spirit
His light unfolds to bless.
His presence within His dearest ones
More alive than life to me
Kindness overflows obedient hearts
flowing as a river
To love those the Son made free.
Symphonies in nature ebb and flow
as waves upon the sea;
moved by power above the wonder
Surging continually to lift me
Above what I by myself can be.
Glorious moments upon the heights
Almost to touch His face,
Faith brings me close; I stand tall to see
I am affirmed to the praise of His glory,
Before time began, God rejoiced over me!
Buoyed in a sea of the Father’s love,
guided by His Spirit to understand,
Enabled to respond with love to others
With Christ like compassion and grace,
More as the Father planned.
In quiet stirring of morning light
before the dawn of day
There is an air of expectation
Creation is tuned to God’s melody,
Waiting with excitement to play.
I am made in His image to love,
To offer prayers back to the Light.
Words inspired of the Spirit,
Rejoicing in hope for each new dawn,
The King is victorious over the night.
I am a child of heavenly love
Having received from what is the Father’s above
through Christ our Savior and Lord.
He is the radiance of eternal God,
He alone is worthy to be adored.
With awe in witness of His glory
Confident to approach the throne,
Promised assurance of One above the wonder,
made known in miraculous display,
Eternal God named me as His own.
