Everything is holy

Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of Hosts;
the whole earth is full of his glory 

(Isaiah 6:3; NKJV).

1. All we see is holy,
For God fashions everything;
And all we touch is holy,
For it all belongs to him.

2. All we grow is holy,
For he’s over all he makes;
And all we eat is holy,
For he’s in all he creates.

3. All we use is holy,
For God lives through all there is;
And those we meet are holy,
For all of us are his.

4. All we are is holy,
For he shapes us with his love;
And all we bear is holy,
For the Lord makes all things good.

5. So let us thank the Father:
Give him glory – he is King;
For heaven and earth are holy,
And all things come from him.
