HEAVENS AND EARTH
(from Psalm 136)


a joyful song of thanksgiving

 

Give thanks to the Lord for He is good
God of all gods and Lord of all lords
He does great wonders and made the creation
His lovingkindness is everlasting
His lovingkindness is everlasting

Heavens and earth (xx),
Oceans and stars (xx)
Sun, moon, the day and night,
He’s over all! (xx xx xx xx)

We thank You Lord for You are good
God of all gods and Lord of all lords

You do great wonders and made the creation
Your lovingkindness is everlasting
Your lovingkindness is everlasting

Heavens and earth (xx),

Oceans and stars (xx)
Sun, moon, the day and night,
You're over all ! (xx xx xx xx)

(repeat second verse)

 

Written while sitting on a stone wall, enjoying God's creation,
in the back yard of the Crossroads Study Center (Framingham MA)
during a Wayne Anderson Spiritual Intimacy Retreat.

This song was recorded by Duffy and Barbara Kirklewski
and used as an introductory theme song for
their church's weekly radio program.
They also used "In The Splendor Of Your Courts" for these programs.

It has been sung by soldiers at
worship services in Kuwait & Iraq

Our choir presented your song 
" You Are Awesome God - Ihmeellinen Jumala"
at our church service tonight. 

We have been singing also several other songs of yours in hospitals 
this year,  for instance "Heavens And Earth", "You Are My Shepherd", 
"By Your Abundant Love"...  We have some new choir members and 
it's a pleasure to teach them these wonderful songs.
