On #Eclipse2017, a song to celebrate the majesty of our Creator

Eclipse day is here, and my hometown of Nashville Tennessee has gone absolutely crazy with people staring at the sun through paper glasses. It really is a once in a lifetime event, and the whole thing has had me thinking a lot about Psalm 19:

1The heavens declare the glory of God;

the skies proclaim the work of his hands.

2Day after day they pour forth speech;

night after night they reveal knowledge.

3They have no speech, they use no words;

no sound is heard from them.

4Yet their voice goes out into all the earth,

their words to the ends of the world.

In the heavens God has pitched a tent for the sun.

5It is like a bridegroom coming out of his chamber,

like a champion rejoicing to run his course.

6It rises at one end of the heavens

and makes its circuit to the other;

nothing is deprived of its warmth.

“What a Glorious King” proclaims the greatness of God the creator. The Bible says that the heaven’s declare God’s glory. Footage from this video was taken from NASA’s time lapse project filmed aboard the ISS.


I saw the sunrise
Stretch its arms over the earth
And the mountain reach toward heaven in praise
A vast creation
By an uncreated God
Who was here before we counted the days

All the things You made and said were good
Just glimpses of Your greatness and glory

So sing to the magnificent Creator
What a Glorious King
What a Glorious King
Join all of heaven worshiping the Maker
And together we sing
What a glorious KingYou scattered starlight
Over infinite space
And You chased away the darkness with a word
And there with one breath
You gave life to every man
Who You formed out of the clay of the earth

And every single breath that you give to me
Is evidence of your love and mercy

Oh let my every heart beat
Oh let my every word
Be a reflection of the love You deserve
Of the love You deserve
