I See God's Hand
Author: Ben Laney


In the majestic mountains
that rise up to the sky
In the wings of eagles
that ride the winds on high
In ev'ry ocean wave that crashes
And ev'ry lightning bolt that flashes
I see God's hand...I see God's hand

In the burning morning
that gives birth to my day
In clouds that are forming
to carry rain my way
In the power of thunder booming
and ev'ry flower that is blooming
I see God's hand...I see God's hand

In the eyes of children
who dance and play and sing
In true friends and loved ones
Whom warmth and comfort bring
In ev'ry stranger I'm meeting
and ev'ry pounding heart beating
I see God's hand...I see God's hand

I know his face cannot be seen
by any puny, mortal man
But his design shines in all things
and from where-ever I might stand
I see God's hand...I see God's hand

------- Author's Notes -------

I read in the ancient scriptures that he has named every star, and he knows the number of hairs on our heads. That's pretty awesome to consider. I hope you like this one! *****Ben
