Heaven praises His miracles,
His faithfulness for the just;
Will overcome all obstacles,
Of desires that causes lust.
Who in the skies could be compared,
Among anyone like the Lord;
So many marvels He has shared,
How can it ever be ignored.
He terrifies in the council,
Greater than those who surround Him;
But an advocate to counsel,
Awe-inspiring to increase vim.
God of Armies, who is like you?
Mighty Lord, Commander in Chief;
Faithfulness that is holding true,
For those with a righteous belief.
He rules all of the raging seas,
When its waves rise He quiets them;
He calms wind down to a breeze,
Using tsunamis to condemn.
He crushed Rahab just like it was clay,
His strong arm will scatter His foes;
Disciplines those who disobey,
As well as anyone who strays.
Heaven is His as well as earth,
Making the world and all you see;
The resources with all their worth,
That are useful for you and me.
The Lord created south and north,
Directing us towards east and west;
For dispersing as we go forth,
Lighting the way as we invest.
Joyfully we rejoice His name,
His arm is mighty and strong hand;
Lifting up high as we proclaim,
Following what He does command.
Righteousness is His foundation,
Mercy and truth to remain first;
The joyful sound of salvation,
While His light will quench your thirst.
