Below are the lyrics to a song I wrote about creation. I was struck powerfully by the realization, during this course, that far too few songs address God’s wondrous beauty and creativity. What I have here is an attempt to craft something that the gathered community can sing together in a worshipful response to the fact that we have an inheritance in that creativity and beauty.
We are creators and the created. We both enjoy his creations and jump into the divine dance of creativity. God as creator has long been one of Christianity’s most well worn descriptors for our Lord. Mankind’s longing for and recognition of beauty is universally recognized – in both spiritual and secular circles. So songs that declare that God is the owner and originator of beauty and creativity are bound to stir interest in believers and non-believers in getting to know him.
I do not have a chord charts available or a recording as I am merely a drummer and barely able to put words to a page (cue the laughter). However, I intend to work with my co-laborers in worship and music to put something together with this for our community. Since I am already starting the next course, I thought I should get this up even without a recording.
You are light, you are life
You are beauty glorified
All creation testifies
To the splendor of your eyes
Come all you creatures and sing to our Maker
Jump in the river that flows with his laughter
Dance in the pleasure of the Son and our Father
Shout he is good (and) his love lasts forever
You are the water walker
A tree top stalker
All you made is under your feet
You are the lighting wielder
Broken heart healer
Alleluia to the King of Kings
