The trees lift their fruits as an offering,
In the morning when they pray;
The birds are drawn to their nests,
At the end of a tiresome day.
The fish of the sea explore the depths,
Through rays that pierce the waves;
Your love shines through the darkness—
By Your amazing grace.
The stars line up to adore You,
Their brightness as per appointment;
The skies, from end to end retell
The story of Jesus’ atonement.
The moon lights the path of the wind,
To find its way home in the valley;
My heart responds to Your Spirit,
My heart delights in Your company.
How You form a mountain from a pebble,
How You make a bouquet from a seedling;
How You stir the ocean with a ripple,
How You start from nothing to make
How You take a piece of my suffering,
To create a heart of rejoicing;
I am nothing apart from Your doing —
I am safe within Your keeping!
Let me not rise like a sturdy mountain,
Let me curl small within Your palm;
Let me not soar if a reckless raven,
But lock me up in Your awesome plan.
If I rise, let me rise to follow You,
If I fall, let me fall to honor You;
Just let me say how much I love You —
Just let me stay in love with You.
I will lift my eyes to the heavens,
When circumstances cloud my judgment;
I will seek Your guidance and acceptance
And claim this very day Your present.
In this song of adoration,
I will lift Your Holy Name;
Father You deserve the best of me —
Thy glory will never, ever wane.
Ruth V. Mostrales
