Heaven's Overflow

Psalm 113:3
From the rising of the sun to the place where it sets, 
the name of the LORD is to be praised.

This November we are treated to one spectacular sunrise/sunset after the next...
this Never-Before-Seen sunrise is happening right now!! (or was when I started this post)

Honey! Says Mr. Very-Extra-Matter-of-Fact to me whenever
I am over-rapturously rhapsodizing at heavenly declarations.
'there have been skies forever, with many a sunrise and set.
This is nothing new!!'
and I reply Yes!! but, that's the beauty of it!
This is new! 
No one has ever seen this sunrise/set before!

This is the Beauty of each and every day...
always new!
Like God's mercies every morning!

Through the Lord’s mercies we are not consumed,
Because His compassions fail not.
They are new every morning;
Great is Your faithfulness.
“The Lord is my portion,” says my soul,
“Therefore I hope in Him!”

A tremor on celestial strings...
Who knows what will unfold
On music sheets from welkin springs
Of magenta and gold

Where, wonder of all wonders, He
Who measures dust of days
With original Majesty
Not one sunrise replays

The Beauty of the Lord is such
No daybreak can deplete
Beneath His unparalleled touch
He never hits 'repeat'

But breathes upon the dark of dawn
Mercy's latest release
Beneath the charge of Hope's baton
A brand, new masterpiece

A brand, new day the Lord has made
For His Name to be praised
Beauty is like a love-song played
To keep Faith's gaze amazed

Then, lift your eyes unto the hills
That hang from heaven's gates
And join the worship hymn that spills
For God knows what yet waits

Sunrise, sunset, again, again
As long as grace bestows
The music bars for love's refrain
As Heaven overflows
