God made the heavens and the earthAuthor: Carolyn Winfrey Gillette

Published in 1 hymnal
God made the heavens and the earth.
God’s Spirit moved; they came to be.
For when God spoke, there was the light,
And solid ground, and rolling sea.
Lord, all your world’s a precious gift.
You give dominion! Help us share
In your creation’s loving care.
God saw the earth was very good.
God spoke, and life came bursting forth:
The bright green grass, the shaded wood,
And wondrous creatures ‘round the earth.
And soon it was, God spoke again:
In God’s good image we were made,
To fill the earth, and tenderly
To tend the land, and love, and pray.
When I look up and see the stars,
Creation shouts your praise anew.
I humbly ask, “Lord, who am I?”
Yet, we are called to work with you.
