Praise Alone

To the Lord belong even the highest heavens; the earth is his also, and everything on it.
Deuteronomy 10:14 (NLT)
Before the earth had yet begun
its journey round the burning sun,
before a seed of life had stirred,
there sounded God's creating Word.

In that bright dawning of the world,
ere ocean surged or wind unfurled,
the vaults of heaven with praises rang,
the morning stars together sang.

Thus when creation's God did take
the clay of earth our form to make,
God willed that to our race belong
the gifts of music, word, and song.

For mind can never comprehend,
our noblest words can but pretend
to grasp God's glory; praise alone
is our companion by that throne.
 Herbert O'Driscoll

Honor God and praise his greatness! For the time has come for him to judge all people. Worship him who made heaven, earth, sea, and the springs of water!
 Revelation 14:7 (NLT)
Prayer after thinking about today's devotion:
Creator Spirit, who broodest everlastingly over the lands and waters of earth, enduing them with forms and colors which no human skill can copy: Give me today, I beseech thee, the mind and heart to rejoice in thy creation.
