Song of the Month: January 2022

God omniscient, God all-knowing in His wisdom does ordain
Every working of creation to the glory of His name
Who His thoughts can dare to fathom, Who His judgments can contain?
None His equal, unassailable, He our God who ever reigns

God all-keeping, omnipresent, in the passing days of man
First to last, not one forgotten by His strong and steering hand
He the Sovereign Lord now praise we, He the fount of Providence
On His word we rest unwavering, yes His perfect Word shall stand

God omnipotent and mighty, inexhaustible His strength
Governments and fleeting powers, melt before His majesty
How unsearchable His greatness, how inscrutable His ways
Sing His greatness and pre-eminence over all created things

God unchanging, ever-faithful, to His covenant of grace
We His people Christ did ransom, to the glory of His Name
Now ascribe unending worship, now ascribe immortal praise
To the God whose Kingdom cometh, blessed be His matchless Name

(Words and Music by Matt Boswell, 2015)

God’s attributes are ultimately about His glory. And defining the glory of God is impossible to adequately achieve.

There are some words in our vocabulary that we can communicate with, not because we can merely say them, but because we can see them. We can point at enough things and see enough things together to say, “That’s it!”

We can say God is “omnipotent” (all-powerful), but it’s hard to describe without pointing to a sunset, or pointing to the Grand Canyon, or pointing to a newborn baby and say, “That’s it! That’s how powerful He is!”

God is in a class by Himself. He has infinite perfections, infinite greatness, and infinite worth. The heavens are telling of the glory of God (Psalm 19:1), shouting with clouds and blue expanse and gold horizons and galaxies and stars that God is glorious.

The glory of God, in His infinite beauty and manifold perfections, is what we are made to point at, to know, to marvel, to love, and to worship.

Onward and Upward!
