Great is the lord
Oh come letís praise his holy name
Jehovah My lord and my king
He satisfies me with good things
He owns the cattle on a thousand hills
Lily of the valley
The bright and the morning star
Rose of Sharon
My maker
Master of the Universe
Conqueror of the world
My lord, the man of war
Defender of my soul
Truly, my lord is great


Hear the birds sing his praises
The storm thunders his magnificence
He is the lion of the tribe of Judah
I am amazed by the calmness of the deep blue sea
In awe I stand at the roar of the ocean
The giver of life, peace, joy, laughter,
The sun shines his glory across the universe
The moon beams the beauty of his holy presence
The sea is as calm as his spirit


The word of man holds little water
Treachery becomes a way of life
I shudder at the filth that emanates
From the heart of man
Alas! the road seems so short
Where do I begin this journey?
Need I continue this sojourn?
I remember my maker
My heart is overwhelmed with pure joy
Fountains of living water
Such as you can only have
If you know him
I am at peace with myself and all humanity


Neither silver nor gold have I
But such as I have I give
I shout his praise across the earth
With my first fruit
Will I build his temple
More men shall I draw unto
To taste of the sweetness of his presence
Dwelling in his temple.
My praises will I offer
Sweet aroma of incense
Melodious songs shall I sing
Lighting up the lordís house
Bringing hope to the lost
Like I once was
Indeed my lord is the greatest

Very Psalm-like and touchingly written.
