Creator God, who shaped the earth and heavens
Your glory shines in all that you have made
You spoke the Word, who broke into the darkness
All earth replies: “majestic is your name!”

And who am I, though made below the angels
That you, my King, are mindful of my ways?
As moon and stars sing out their joyful chorus
I lift my voice to join with them in praise

Redeeming God, creation’s song fell silent
As on the cross, the Light was pierced with dark
The Word of life to death now hangs surrendered
The one who spoke out stars now breathes his last

And who am I, the lowliest of sinners
That you would pay the price my sin deserves?
My Maker scarred for those who marred his likeness
And from his wounds flows mercy unreserved

O living God! You broke the tomb in glory
Death could not hold the one who authored life!
His radiant light has shattered through our darkness
And in our hearts, his risen life now shines

And who are we, that you would call us children
And raise us up from death to life with you
Where we will sing the New Creation anthem:
“O praise the one who’s making all things new!”

And so we wait in eager expectation
And join the song as all creation groans:
“Lord, haste the Day decay is slain by glory,
The Day you call your sons and daughters home.”
