None Like You

Creator of the moon and stars, of mountains reaching high,
Creator of the galaxies who hears a baby’s cry.
Eternity, with all its years, stands present in Your view.
Alpha and Omega, Lord, there is none like You.

You make the wilderness to bloom and in the desert sand,
Provide the gentle, soaking rain, refreshing thirsty land.
You send the warming of the sun, the fragile snowflake too.
We bow in gratitude, O Lord, there is none like You.

You paint the rainbow on the storm and tell the wind to cease,
You reach out with tender hand, creation is at peace.
You speak Your Word and it is done, the universe obeys,
But we are free to choose, Your children sing Your praise.

Creator of the moon and stars, of mountains reaching high,
Creator of the galaxies who hears a baby’s cry.
Eternity, with all its years, stands present in Your view.
Alpha and Omega, Lord, there is none like You.

- None Like You -

That song, None Like You, by Craig Courney, is one of my favorites.  I pretty much love all his work, but this one has been a constant hit for me.  Every time I hear this song, I picture each thing he mentions.  The majesty and complete beauty of my Savior overwhelms me without fail.  When I hear the recording of the choir come to the part,

"Creator of the galaxies, who hears a babies cry."

That gives me chills.  Our God; who is beyond everything we know of in the universe, who created us and breathed exsistance into what we know as being "life", can still hear a tiny infant's cry.  He takes notice of the little, weak, and helpless things.  Beautiful.  Also,

"Eternity, with all it's years, stands present in Your veiw."

Our God was there before time began.  We can't comprehend it, but He was.  There is no time in Heaven.  He can see all of eternity, but we can't.  Isn't our God amazing?  When you really think about it, you really feel small, don't you?

"Alpha and Omega (the beginning and the end), Lord, there is none like You."
