I pray that in my lifetime, I would be able to pen a (or many) hymns of praise to the glory of my King!
One of my favourite hymns is 'How Great Thou Art'. That hymn expresses the awesome wonder of our Great God through the wonders of His great creation. The first verse goes thus.....
Oh Lord My God
When I in awesome wonder
The works thy hands hath made
I see the stars
I hear the roaring thunder
Your Power througout
The Universe displayed
Hmmm.. When you and I take a moment out of the hustle and bustle of life to deeply consider the world, the galaxy and the universe, or to open our eyes and really SEE our surroundings, we don't need any more convincing that God's not dead, He's alive and He is such a MIGHTY GOD!
... Lord, I take a moment to consider the clouds, the majestic nature of it. We settle for blue but no known colour could truly describe it! How great thou art!
We consider the sun, the moon and the stars, and we just stand amazed at how 'things' hang suspended in the sky with no visible hold, and give light that nothing else could compare. How great thou art!
We consider the lightning and thunder.. We see streaks of light and hear loud, rumbling noise.. It astounds us Lord.. Indeed how great thou art!
We consider the great mountains and hills, the elements that were there before us and will remain long after us.. The magnificence of them and we can't but say - How great thou art!
We could go on and on Great God.. And your daughter Mobolaji Amusu captures it beautifully:
