Lord, how majestic you are,
My eyes meet Your gaze
And my burden is lifted.
Your word is a lamp to my feet,
Your hand swift to bless
And Your banner a shield.
You are my everything,
You who made earth and sky and sea;
All that You’ve placed inside of me
Calls out Your name.
To You, I bow:
The King who commands my every breath,
The Man who has conquered sin and death,
My Lord and my King;
Lord, how resplendent You are,
When I think of Your heavens,
The work of Your fingers;
What is man, that You are mindful of him?
Yet You’ve crowned him with glory
And caused him to reign?
A response worship to God's infinite love for us
This song, based on Psalm 8, is actually the first worship song I ever wrote. I love the way the psalm beautifully expresses our sense of insignificance in the vastness of creation (a perspective only intensified by our modern knowledge of just how vast the universe is), which makes it all the more amazing that God should value and love us so much. It causes us to respond in love and worship with every breath He gives us.
