O King So Great and Infinite

Inspired by Psalm 139

O King so great and infinite
Beyond what I could ever know
You know my every word and thought
My every move, where’er I go

You never slumber, never sleep
On me You always set your eyes
Your hand protects and covers me
When I lie down, when I arise

O King beyond all time and space
Enthroned so high above the earth
From heaven, You look down on us
And give the lowly hope and worth

Your wonders take my breath away
I always love to see and tell
That You Who made the mighty mounts
Have also formed each tiny cell

O King Who does such wondrous works
Who rules the rain and spreads the sea
Who made all beauty, truth, and worth
Within the womb, You fashioned me

You gave me purpose, planned my years
And knitted me with tender care
You breathed in me the breath of life
Before I took a breath of air

O King so wise and powerful
All things are subject unto You
But yet, free-will You gave to me
And let me choose what I shall do

You force me not to take Your love
You force me not my love to give
I freely give You all my love
My heart is Yours; in You I live

O King Who made the galaxies
The stars and worlds that have no end
Oh, I am dust and ashes! Why
Would You look down and call me friend?

Your love, so deep and infinite
You let me know, and taste, and see
You gave Your life so I could live
Such knowledge is too vast for me!

O King beyond all earthly praise
Who numbers all the stars and sands
I read that You can not abide
In dwellings made by human hands

My hope, my everything, You are
No words I write seem fit for Thee
But since Your hands have formed my life
Please come–You can abide in me

I am a nineteen-year-old girl who loves to write, especially fiction. I write many stories and poems. I usually have a moral or lesson behind my writings, for I hope these stories and poems, which Yehovah (God) helped me to write, will glorify Him as I share them on this blog. Welcome to my blog and I hope you enjoy your stay!
