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
