All Glory,Honor and Power

Have you ever just taken time to look up into the sky and allowed the majesty and greatness of God overwhelm you? We live on this small ball of dirt, we call earth and home, but there is a vast universe all around us, a universe held in perfect order by God Himself.
Recently the praise band at my church sang, what to me was brand new song.I didn't know the tune, but the words spoke to me and caused me to worship God.
I want to share the words of that song,Cannons by Phil Wickham, with some pictures I have taken and one taken by my son,Steve.

It's falling from the clouds
A strange and lovely sound



I hear it in the thunder and rain
It's ringing in the skies
Like cannons in the night
The music of the universe plays



You are holy great and mighty
The moon and the stars declare who You are
I'm so unworthy, but still You love me
Forever my heart will sing of how great You are



Beautiful and free
Song of Galaxies
It's reaching far beyond the milky way

****Photo by Steve Hiebert****


Lets join in with the sound
C'mon let's sing it loud
As the music of the universe plays



All glory, honor, power is Yours amen
All glory, honor, power is Yours amen
All glory, honor, power is Yours forever amen


 What other words can I say to end this, but
Praise be to God,who loves us and keeps us in His care.
