Almost 300 years ago, Isaac Watts sat reading a centuries old Psalm written by King David. The reading inspired him to write the words to the beautiful hymn, I Sing the Mighty Power of God. A few days ago, I happened across the words of Isaac’s hymn and was inspired to find some beautiful images to accompany his beautiful words.
Holding hands across the centuries we are…King David, Isaac and Charlotte. Together we offer timeless praise to the Timeless One. Together we sing the mighty power of God.
I sing the mighty power of God, that made the mountains rise,
That spread the flowing seas abroad, and built the lofty skies.
I sing the wisdom that ordained the sun to rule the day;
The moon shines full at God’s command, and all the stars obey.
I sing the goodness of the Lord, who filled the earth with food,
Who formed the creatures through the Word, and then pronounced them good.
Lord, how Thy wonders are displayed, where’er I turn my eye,
If I survey the ground I tread, or gaze upon the sky.
The heavens proclaim the glory of God.
The skies display his craftsmanship.
Day after day they continue to speak;
night after night they make him known.
They speak without a sound or word;
their voice is never heard.–Psalm 19:1-3
