I Sing

I sing the almighty power of God,
That made the mountains rise,
That spread the flowing seas abroad,
And built the lofty skies.


I sing the wisdom
That ordained the sun to rule the day,
The moon shines full at his command,
And all the stars obey.
 
 
I sing the goodness of the Lord,
That filled the earth with food;
He formed the creatures with his Word,
And then pronounced them good.


Lord, how thy wonders are displayed,
Wherever I turn my eye,
If I survey the ground I tread,
Or gaze upon the sky!

 
There's not a plant or flower below,
But makes thy glories known;
And clouds arise, and tempests blow,
by order from they throne;

While all that borrows life from thee
Is ever in they care,
And every where that man can be,
Thou, God, art present there.

We sang this hymn in church this morning and it touched me. God is powerful. God's love is powerful. I give thanks to him. The hymn I sing the Almighty Power of God was written in 1715 by Isaac Watts.
 
I haven't been anywhere special this week for photography, but, I did wander around close to home and several pictures I took go with the words of this song. I'm linking this to Helen's Weekend Walk at A Flash Of Inspiration.

  1. That mushroom with light coming through reminds me of a little lamp. An unusual colored shell on the turtle - it looks varnished! All lovely.
