TITLE: How Great Thou Art! (iv)
By Fenny West


Good, Great I Am, God, Great High Priest (Heb4:14), Great God Tit2:13 Great Shepherd Heb13:20, Glorious Lord(Isa33:21)
Ransom, redeemer (isa59:20) Righteous (2Tim4:8, Isa53:11) Rock(1Cor10:4) Root and Offspring of David
Eternal God (John1:1,2,15, Everlasting Father(Isa9:6)Emmanuel, ever-present (Mat18:20)
All- powerful (Matt.28:18), advocate alpha and Omega (Rev.21:6) (1John2:1) almighty (Rev.19:15), Ancient of Days (Dan7:9)anointed above His fellows, Author and the Finisher of our Faith (Heb12:2) Author of Eternal Salvation (Heb5:9) Amen ((Rev.3:14)
Teacher (John3:2),True Vine (John15:1)Truth (John14:6)

He spans the universe, predates the galaxies, makes the earth His footstool, lives in inapproachable light. He is great, beyond description, the greatest, incomparable in greatness and great are His purposes (Ps92:3) (Ps 86:8), too marvellous for words.
He is the Lord, the Lord God, Merciful and Gracious, Extraordinarily Patient and Abundant in Goodness and in Truth. Ex34:6 He is the Living God (Josh3:10), the Lord of Hosts (Isa1:24) the Mighty God (Isa9:6)
His love is unfathomable like a mighty mountain, as high as the heaven is above the earth; and His faithfulness like a great deep (Ps36) His voice is powerful, majestic and thunders from heaven; it shatters and scatters waters; strikes with flashes of lightning. It resounds and breaks cedars, twists the oaks, shakes the desert and strips the forests bare (ps29 His righteousness is like the mighty mountains and His justice like the great deep

Manifold and infinite in wisdom, He is wisdom personified. (Ps104:24), Just and true are His ways and they are past finding, high than our ways; and His thoughts, higher than our thoughts. He is the Creator (Isa40:12, 22, 27), perfect, faithful and True, the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords (Rev 19)
He is Pre-eminent and immanent; permanent, excellent, self-existent, pre-existent magnificent, and resplendent He gathers the seas and puts them in His storehouse. He names the stars one by one by their name; He measures the earth with the span of His hands and weighs the mountains on His scale. The Most High holds the sea in the hollow of his hands. He is, and was and is to come. He knows and declares the end from the beginning. He knows our thoughts afar off. Knows what we would say even before we utter it. He owns the earth in all its fullness, and the cattle on the thousand hills belong to Him. He is every where and knows everything Col2:3.-He is life, the word of life, the all-wise God.
There is no one like Him. No one can compare to Him, no Rock like our God; glorious in Holiness, fearful in praises, not only doing wonders, but a wonder Himself. He is splendours, glorious victorious, marvellous, gorgeous, fabulous, the Righteous Judge.

He intricately wove man in His own image, spread the galaxies across the expanse of the universe.
O, what a wonder You are!

He makes the lame to walk, the dumb to speak, and the blind to see He raises the dead, feeds 5000 with two fish and five loaves. What an awesome and incredible God!

He is the Standby, the Guide, the Teacher, the Comforter, Counsellor, the Intercessor.

He is the Hope of Glory, the Lord of Glory, the Holy one of Israel, the Righteous Judge, the Sovereign God Who reigns supreme, the Lord, the Lord God, God of gods, the Most High, He is the Master, the Bright Morning Star, Lion of Judah, the Advocate, Attorney, the Alpha and omega, the creator, Mediator, Messiah, Author and Finisher of our Faith, the First and the Last , the Best of the best, the Beginning and the End, the Friend of Sinners, the Friend Who sticks closer than a brother, my Friend to the end, the Fairest of the Ten Thousand, the merciful, all-powerful, beautiful, Faithful and True God, the True Vine, the Truth, the Way,, the Living Way, the Life, the Light that lights the life of men; the Light through Whom we see light,
He speaks and it is done, commands and it stands fast and is exceedingly abundantly able, able to turn the tables, able to do far beyond my wildest dreams.
His name is wonderful, powerful; above every other name, sweeter than the honey in the honey comb.

He is One God in three persons, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit- , the good, the great, the grand, the Great I Am, the I am that I Am, the God of Abraham.

Who is like unto him? What god is like him?

This is a glorious meditation on the attributes of God. The first paragraph with all of the parenthetical references lacks the audience "hook" -- I'd consider rearranging this like free verse poetry. Full of glorious truth.

I love so many of the attributes of God that you have written here. This would make a wonderful contemporary Psalm. I would agree with the idea of rewriting this in the format of free verse.
