Psalm 19:1 The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
Isaiah 40:26 Lift up your eyes and look to the heavens: Who created all these? He who brings out the starry host one by one and calls forth each of them by name. Because of his great power and mighty strength, not one of them is missing.
Psalm 86:8-10 There is none like thee among the gods, O Lord, nor are there any works like thine. All the nations thou hast made shall come and bow down before thee, O Lord, and shall glorify thy name. For thou art great and doest wondrous things, thou alone art God.
My heart does long for a mountain to hold with deep embrace and prayers that unfold into the sweetened winds, as all things are told.
Do you see the rock, the boulder, the tree? They are each a friend, they are dear to me. The mountain waits; the ancients see. They bid my heart, they set me free.
Rocky heights rush towards a heaven rare, Oh Holy Spirit, I feel Thee there! My Own is lifted, endowed in the Air.
My soul soars throughout, as on the wings of a dove In embrace with the Earth, held so rare, high above. Nature’s shoulders keep vigil, they see; they love. Oh, hold this dear Mountain, it’s the Lord’s Treasure Trove.
In the mountain tops, I answered,
Near the white cloud mist’s hold.
Where shoulders of green bear gentle earth mothers.
They call up horizons, they reach to sky’s fold.
Bearing weight all, caring with nests filled with gold.
Sweetened with sunlight shed full upon
Mountain fellows, their faces, turned by lives worn.
Here on their shoulders, high in the sky,
dipped in the blue is a Majesty’s cry.
Love in the balance of heaven and earth
dreams reach to thee as the clouds fall with mirth.
All into shoulders of gentle green peaks
like mounds of earth mothers that fall, quake, birth, seek.
Soft are the bellows, on sky mounds that run
lovingly towards home near to the sun.
Angels paint rainbows in tomorrow’s new day
from the mountaintop’s glory, in horizons we pray.
For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him.
For the Lord is the great God, the great King above all gods. In his hand are the depths of the earth, and the mountain peaks belong to him. The sea is his, for he made it, and his hands formed the dry land.
The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
