You are so big . . .
Your power created the universe;
All the things I see, all I cannot.
Your wisdom smoothly runs it
Without raising a sweat on Your brow.
Your majesty is seen in it
But only as a dim reflection of Your glory.
And You want to be intimate
With small and insignificant me.
You are so loving . . .
You forgive the worst sinners
When they come to You in repentance.
You came to give Yourself for us
While we were yet sinners all.
You would have done it if all the world were perfect
Except for one poor, sinful soul.
And You want to pour out this love
On someone as undeserving as me.
You are so powerful . . .
All You have to do is think
And amazing things happen.
You decided all the laws of the universe,
And go outside them as You choose.
There is nothing that happens anywhere
That You don’t know of it before it occurs.
And You want to share Your power
Pouring it into a life as powerless as mine.
I can’t think of this too often,
You are so immense.
And I am so small.
You are so loving.
And I am so insignificant.
You are so powerful.
And I am so weak.
But for all our many differences,
You demand intimacy between us.
And of all the things I’ve ever thought of,
This is the most amazing one:
To have intimacy with Your immensity
Is a thing my mind can never comprehend.
