When I look

I wanted to sing about the wonder of the universe, and liked the tune to the very popular hymn, ‘How great Thou art’. I cannot sing those words but these verses seem to express a lot about who I am and what I believe.

When I look up and see the stars appearing
I feel such joy and wonder in my heart.
The Milky Way and galaxies revolving
are such a stage for me to play my part.
          So, sing with me of life and love and peace 
          in harmony and unity.
          Yes, we will sing, of love and joy and peace,
          and celebrate humanity.
 
When I look down and see the earth beneath me
I am amazed at life’s variety.
The plants on land and creatures from the deep sea
Show nature’s force is filled with energy.
           So, sing with me of life and love and peace 
           in harmony and unity.
           Yes, we will sing, of love and joy and peace,
           and celebrate diversity.
 
When I look back and see the sweep of history
as suns were born and planets pulled in place,
I understand that all of time is mystery
and here on earth life is a precious grace.
            So, sing with me of life and love and peace 
            in harmony and unity.
            Yes, we will sing, of love and joy and peace,
            and celebrate humility.
 
When I look on to see the future coming
I do not know what each tomorrow brings.
But this I hope that there is always meaning
as  love unfolds and unifies all things.
            So, sing with me of life and love and peace,
            in harmony and unity.
            Yes, sing with me of love and joy and peace,
            and celebrate eternity.
 
Tune: How great thou art
