Proclaiming His Power

"By His Spirit He hath garnished the heavens; His hand hath formed the crooked serpent.  Lo, these are parts of His ways: but how little a portion is heard of Him?  But the thunder of his power who can understand?" (Job 26:13,14).  "Power belongeth unto God.  Also unto Thee, O Lord, belongeth mercy" (Psalm 62:11,12).  "Now the man out of whom the devils were departed besought Him that he might be with Him: but Jesus sent him away, saying,  Return to thine own house, and shew how great things God hath done unto thee" (Luke 8:38,39). 

The stars that were formed by God's hand
Proclaim only parts of His ways. 
His power we scarce understand,
Since these only whisper His praise!

How rightly we tremble with awe
As we are beholding creation,
Yet as we have pondered His law,
His mercy displays His salvation!   

The demons were chased from the man
The moment our Savior said "Go."
How great is God's merciful plan
That we are commanded to show!

Lord, as we're proclaiming Your power,
We're showing Your mercy as well,
Since You have become our strong Tower  
And Refuge that saves us from hell!
