Michael Weaver, Phil Wickham

In the beginning you laid the foundations of the earth,
    and the heavens are the work of your hands.
They will perish, but you remain;
    they will all wear out like a garment.
Like clothing you will change them
    and they will be discarded.
But you remain the same,
    and your years will never end.

– Psalm 12:25-27 (NIV)

I see the works of Your Hands
Galaxies spin in a Heavenly dance oh God
All that You are is so overwhelming
I hear the sound of Your Voice
All at once it’s a gentle and thundering noise oh God
All that You are is so overwhelming

I delight myself in You
Captivated by Your beauty
I’m overwhelmed, I’m overwhelmed by You
God, I run into Your arms
Unashamed because of mercy
I’m overwhelmed, I’m overwhelmed by You

I know the power of Your Cross
Forgiven and free forever You’ll be my God
All that You’ve done is so overwhelming

You are Beautiful, You are Beautiful
Oh God, there is no one more Beautiful
You are Beautiful, God you are the most Beautiful
(Repeat: “Wonderful”; Repeat: “Glorious”)

It’s humanly impossible to fully grasp the greatness of God. Even the staunchest atheists and naturalists would have to agree that the wonders of science and creation are so vast and mysterious that it can become overwhelming to fully take in. As Christians, we may have a source for all of this (namely, God), but that doesn’t come close to capturing (and ultimately diminishing) the awesomeness of God’s creation and His unfathomable sacrifice. So when singing this song, let go of your desire for full “understanding”, and release yourself to the sheer awe that you are singing to the creator-God, who loves you. -Matt Greene
