jehovah lyrics – craig smith

craig smith
psalm 93:1, 90:2, 119:137
we come to thee, o lord, and bow
before the king of israel
god of strength and majesty
sacrifices of praise we bring to thee
jehovah, jehovah
from age to age he is the same
jehovah, jehovah
holy and righteous is thy name
we praise thy name, o lord, with song
honor and glory to our god belong
lord of splendor we proclaim
all heaven and earth do you sustain
praise the name of jehovah our lord! when david wrote the psalms, he
could look across the horizon and see the sunrise. he could marvel at
the lord’s creation and sing his praises. i can imagine david lying in the
gr*ss looking up at the clouds by day and gazing at the hundreds of
stars on a clear night, penning psalm 147. his psalms span the earth and
the seasons describing clouds and rain, snow and frost, lightning and
hail. the magnificent creation that surrounds us today.
last summer some friends invited my wife and me to join them in colorado
for a weekend on a beautiful mountain like. as the sun beamed down on us
in our fishing boat, we were forced to shed jackets and long-sleeved
shirts and enjoy a hot, summer day, while surrounded by breathtaking
snow-capped mountains. the glory of god and his divine nature are truly
broadcast by his creation! (romans 1:20) he sustains this same heaven
and earth from david’s day and before, to our day and beyond.
thousands of years after david with our powerful telescopes, we know
much more about our world. we now know the temperature of the sun and
its distance from us. we know that our earth rotates around the sun 365
times each year. we also know that if the sun was hotter or colder we
couldn’t survive. if it was closer or farther away we could not exist.
the more knowledge we have, the more reason for us to know our
existence is not by chance. yesterday’s television changed our
perspective, today it is computers, and tomorrow it may be
supercomputers. god has allowed us to develop a very complex world.
he has provided us the intelligence and the natural resources. we must
not lose our perspective; we are still living in god’s creation. and he
still loves our praises! we just have more to praise him for as we
discover more what he has given us.–david stubblefield
