Wonder IS God's Signature


A Wonderful First Fall Saturday of 2020!

Wonder is spring’s first fair flower 
Summer fields and Autumn’s show 
Wonder is a winter morning 
Swaddled in fresh-fallen snow 

Wonder is boundless, blue welkin 
Wonder is wee bird that sings 
Wonder is a reawak’ning 
To a world of lovely things 

Wonder is dew-diamonds dazzling 
Daybreak with silver-starred blur 
Wonder is a just-hatched gosling 
Wonder is God’s signature 

Wonder is worship’s expression 
Stirred by beauty’s sundry form 
Wonder is God’s intercession 
As He takes the heart by storm 

Wonder gleams in sun-steeped stubble
Wonder whispers, roars and sings
Wonder soars above life's troubles
And restores hope's broken wings

Wonder eases disappointment
Silenced wish and whim applaud 
While we gaze in sheer amazement 
At unveiled glimpses of God

It is good to praise the Lord
and make music to your name, O Most High,
2 proclaiming your love in the morning
and your faithfulness at night,
3 to the music of the ten-stringed lyre
and the melody of the harp.

4 For you make me glad by your deeds, Lord;
I sing for joy at what your hands have done.
5 How great are your works, Lord,
how profound your thoughts!
6 Senseless people do not know,
fools do not understand,
7 that though the wicked spring up like grass
and all evildoers flourish,
they will be destroyed forever.

8 But you, Lord, are forever exalted.
