    Oh Lord, my heart overflows - with praises to You.
    It’s just so awesome - the things that You do.
    Nothing exists - without Your masterful design.
    And all of Your plans - are perfect and fine.
    You made everything - in this whole universe
    You are most worthy - of my praise in this verse.
    You made mankind - and placed us on earth
    and you blessed each one of us - even before our birth.
    You’ve counted the stars - and each grain of sand.
    You hold the universe - in the palm of Your hand.
    Oh, Lord I lift my voice - in poetic praise
    and I’ll shout hosanna - for the rest of my days.
    Lord, You made the green meadows - where animals graze.
    And You made beautiful sunsets - on which to gaze.
    You sprinkle pretty frost - on the meadow grass
    it sparkles like diamonds - or expensive cut glass.
    You can order the snowflakes - either day or night
    to cover the hillsides - with a blanket of white.
    You designed big rivers - to go rolling by
    They flow continuously - but they never go dry.
    I marvel at the sky - and Your clouds filled with rain
    as I watch the rain drops - on my window pane.
    Then when lightening flashes - putting darkness asunder
    I praise Your Name - when I hear Your mighty thunder,
    for the whole sky lights up - as though it were day
    While I stand in awe - and in helpless dismay.
    What a mighty God - what stupendous power
    Lord, you’re in control - every moment, every hour.
    You control the universe - with Your mighty hand
    All the elements obey - Your every command.

    Each time I’m in need - I call on Your Name
    and You touch me in a way - that I’m never the same.
    For You’ve provided comfort - when my heart was breaking:
    You have plenty of assistance - that’s mine for my taking.
    You always forgive me - when I humbly request:
    Oh, I’m such weak sinner - I feel like a pest.
    You love me so much more - than I can even comprehend
    and You’re always with me - Oh, true and faithful Friend.
    You’re worthy of my praise - from morning till night
    and Your glorious face - shall never leave my sight.
    For my heart is overflowing - with joy and thanksgiving
    and I’ll praise You continually - as long as I’m living. :worship:
