The Glory of God--By Christine Tate--United States

The Glory of God

Heaven's starry curtain is
stretched out by Your hand,
fire is Your servant and
responds to Your command.
The wind is Your vehicle
as You ride upon its wings,
nature in sweet harmony
in appreciation sings...

You set the ocean's boundaries
and foundations of the earth,
You watched me being formed
long before my birth!
Clouds shed tears of joy
falling from the sky,
and the planets glow
as You pass them by.

I stand in awe of Thee
and Your beautiful creation,
as I bow before Your throne
in humble adoration!

Christine Tate has been writing since 1994. She's the mother of 3 sons and has 8 grandchildren. She was widowed in 2007 and met her husband Artie, a widower with 6 children & 12 grandchildren, in a nursing facility where their mothers resided. They've been happily married 4 1/2 years. They describe their meeting as "God's divine appt." because of their faith, and the fact that they swore they'd never marry again.
