W is for Wonder of Wonders


Wonder of Wonders
(Gregg Metcalf)
April 18, 2011



Refrain:

He’s the Wonder of Wonders
The Bright morning star
He is greater than thunder
Or the universe so far
He’s greater than everything
Every creature is under
Let all of creation sing
He’s the Wonder of Wonders

Verse One

Bow low your heavens, O Lord and come down
Touch the mountains and they will all smoke
Stretch out your hand to things that are around
You made all things by the words that you spoke

Verse Two

Sing oh saint of the splendor of His glory
Speak of the might of His awesome deeds
Tell of His ways with the deep blue sea
Tell of his greatness to all of His seed

Refrain:

He’s the Wonder of Wonders
The Bright morning star
He is greater than thunder
Or the universe so far
He’s greater than everything
Every creature is under
Let all of creation sing
He’s the Wonder of Wonders


Verse Three


For He and He alone is the Lord over all
wisdom springs from out of His Word
to him every lip shall sing every knee shall fall
While I live I will sing praise to my Lord

Bridge:

Sing to him you saints for all of your days
He is the Lord and He’s worthy of praise (because)

Refrain:

He’s the Wonder of Wonders
The Bright morning star
He is greater than thunder
Or the universe so far
He’s greater than everything
Every creature is under
Let all of creation sing
He’s the Wonder of Wonders

This was an alternative for the letter W for the A-Z Challenge. I chickened out on posting it and posted W is for Worship instead.

Anybody want to add music to this? Looking for either typical hymn or true southern gospel ballad with steel guitar and significant piano. Will share copyright and sales.

'Why aren't you singing?'

'It said "refrain" so I did'.
