God Is Great

GOD IS GREAT ( A hymn ) How vast Thy ocean , My Lord A lake compared is just a drop How bright , O Lord , Thy sun A beacon burns dim candle - like. What strength , what range is thine To create both dew - drop and deluge Mere twigs , we are , atremble in thy storm . How bountiful thou art , O Lord King’s crown is just a begging bowl. Beggars all we seek thy Grace. How good thou art , My Lord Saint’s slightest slip proves him a sinner Sinners all awaiting Thy forgiveness . What deep mystery , O Lord , is Thine Flash of a genius soon an idiot,s gape Dazed all by Thy inscrutable ways . How grateful ought man to be , O Lord For this Thy gift of wonder The third eye as it were To sense Thy presence every Even coursing through his nerves Content to be the humblest in Thy court, How wasteful is man , my Lord To let this gem be covered By thick dust of thought And the slime of petty skirmishes In spite of all Thy painters , poets Thy singers and Thy saints How beautiful is death in Thy greatness O Lord , distinctions all dissolve Thou and Thy will everywhere How vast Thy ocean,my Lord, A lake compared is just a drop. How bright, O Lord , Thy Sun A beacon burns dim candle – like
