They could see the awesome glory of the Lord
in the cloud (Exodus 16:10; NLT).


1. Lord,
I glimpse your glory in the skies:
Your planets, clouds and stars,
Your sun and moon.

2. Lord,
I sense your beauty in the earth:
Your forests, hills and valleys,
Flower-strewn.

3. Lord,
I feel your power in the sea:
Your currents, waves and storms,
Your ebb and flood.

4. Lord,
I know your presence in my prayers:
Your still, small voice, your light,
Warmth, peace and love.


Sovereign Lord, you made the heavens and earth
and the sea, and everything in them
(Acts 4:24; NIV).

In exile, then in heaven,
