These are not our mountains (with thanks to A.K.)

The heavens are yours, and the earth is yours;
everything in the world is yours – you created it all
(Psalm 89:11; NLT). 

These are not our mountains, Lord,
But yours.
Creatures, plants, land, sea:
You make them all.

Every speck of dust,
At your command;
Sun, moon, stars:
From genesis to fall.

Food, and drink, and life
Come from your hand.
Faith, hope, love and peace:
Supplied by you.

Help us, Lord, to seek you,
And to find.
Then we will see, hear, taste:
And know it’s true.

Taste and see that the Lord is good.
(Psalm 34:8; NLT).

Yours, O Lord, is the greatness, the power, the glory, the victory, and the majesty. Everything in the heavens and on earth is yours, O Lord, and this is your kingdom. We adore you as the one who is over all things
(1 Chronicles 29:11; NLT).

1. Be still,
And know that I am God,
Who made both heaven and earth.

2. Be still,
And know that I, alone,
Cause genesis, and birth.

3. Be still,
And know that I am God,
Who gives all creatures breath.

4. Be still,
And know that I am He
Who sends both life and death.
