Additional verses to
I Sing the Mighty Power of God
These are words that I wrote once to go with a chapel talk at SIL-UND, on how the enormous issues of the universe and our lives depend on the very tiniest of details. --David Tuggy
Godís love and care shows in the small
details that shape the whole.
He counts each hair! Each sparrowís fall
is under his control.
Each atom walks within his ways,
each particle in place,
The electronsí connecting dance displays
Godís deft and careful grace.
Molecular gadgetry abounds
within each living cell:
An awesome complexity surrounds
the ways we see or smell.
Godís hand it is that forms and sets
these functions all in train;
His Spirit probes the neural nets
of thought within my brain.
The farthest reaches man can know
are well within Godís frame:
Black holes devour, long light years flow;
he calls each star by name.
Before all worlds he knew his own
he chose us yet unborn,
To set us pure before the throne
on Christís great wedding morn.
The heavens speak, the mountains shout,
with cliffs like trumpets raised;
The rivers and the rocks cry out
the oceans seethe with praise.
Great galaxies, no two the same,
the wondrous, wormy sod,
And rainbows, and rotifers, proclaim
The artistry of God.
