027: Beyond the farthest bounds of earth
Add to Powerpoint Creator
|Tunes:||St Stephen, 130; Azmon, A.S. 988|
Beyond the farthest bounds of earth,
Beyond the ocean's line,
Beyond the starlit universe
We sense a power divine.
The lines and circles, planes and arcs
Which we by science trace
All indicate a master mind,
Its beauty, truth and grace.
Like searching eyes earth's telescopes
The fiery heavens scan;
And now the music of the spheres
Is heard by listening man.
Lord, as we seek for vaster truth,
And as our spaceships soar,
Help us to recognize your might
And praise your mercy more.
For you, who set the ordinance
Of worlds beyond our sight,
Have given us minds desiring truth
And hearts that know delight.
Lord, teach us in your only Son
To reach the way we dream,
To follow truth as he knew truth,
And find the life supreme.
