Tune Name: KICKING HORSE

Lyrics as Poetry

God, how majestic is your name;
the earth and sky adore you,
the mouths of babies sing your praise
and children dance before you!
When I look up and see the stars
and think of space unending,
I marvel that you come and care
with all your love befriending.God, how majestic is your name;
the earth and sky adore you,
the mouths of babies sing your praise
and children dance before you!
You lift us to the very height
of your creative likeness,
(just as you raised your son from death
to Easter’s wide-awakeness).God, how majestic is your name;
the earth and sky adore you,
the mouths of babies sing your praise
and children dance before you!
