i kid you not – on friday while we were waiting for our friends to get married, the beautiful Val and i were paging thru a hymnal and we found this gem from a guy called Richard G Jones and the song is called ‘The earth is the Lords’ – some classic lines here…

1. God of concrete, God of steel,
God of piston and of wheel,
God of pylon, God of steam,
God of girder and of beam,
God of atom, God of mine,
All the world of power is thine!

2. Lord of cable, Lord of rail,
Lord of motorway and mail,
Lord of rocket, Lord of flight,
Lord of soaring satellite,
Lord of lightning’s livid line,
All the world of speed is thine!

3. Lord of science, Lord of art,
God of map and graph and chart,
Lord of physics and research,
Word of Bible, Faith of Church,
Lord of sequence and design,
All the world of truth is thine!

4. God whose glory fills the earth,
Gave the universe its birth,
Loosed the Christ with Easter’s might,
Saves the world from evil’s blight,
Claims mankind by grace divine,

i really really do enjoy the line ‘Lord of sequence and design’ though… it is so true.
i like it – new favourite hymn…
