Eternal God Exalted

The heart of man plans his way,
But the Lord establishes his steps.
(Proverbs 16:9)

Sky and Stars

 

1.   Eternal God exalted
         Above both time and space;
      You hold my life completely,
         A trophy of Your grace.
      Both time and space a canvas,
         You craft all history
      To show Your grace and power
         Through eternity.

2.   You planned before creation
         My birth and life and death;
      In mercy and in kindness
         You give me every breath.
      You're everywhere in fullness,
         Wherever I may go;
      And all my days and moments
         All at once You know.

3.   Each day Your Word sustains me,
         Your Spirit guides and leads;
      You never will forsake me,
         Your grace is all I need.
      For time is but a teacher,
         A patient means of grace
      That I might learn to trust You,
         Ever seek Your face.

4.   I need not fear the future
         For You're already there;
      And in the past You've brought me
         Through every trial and care.
      In every present moment
         You faithfully are near;
      So help me now to trust You,
         Cast away all fear.
