God’s Voice – The Greatest Sound of All (Praise Poem)

psalm 29

God Almighty,
talking, chirping, mooing and barking
are sounds that we hear from some
of your creatures great and small.
The creature in your image has the
greatest sound of them all.

When we hear the sound of the gusts
of wind, drops of rain, hooting cars,
the screeching train and the cracking
violent sound of thunder from the sky,
it’s the daily melody of Your created earth.

When we hear the sound of the
rise and fall of spluttering waves,
the ship docking and berthing,
ocean sea gulls wailing and squawking,
it’s the melange of stillness and squalling
of the coastal shores you created.

None of these sounds LORD, have
the power to change lives as your
mighty voice, nor match the sound of
your soothing words of comfort when
we seek your fortitude.

There is no sound on earth greater
than your voice that “thunders over the
mighty sea, [and] is powerful;majestic,
splits the mighty cedars; ..
shatters the cedars of Lebanon..
twists mighty oaks and strips the
forests bare…everyone shouts, “Glory!”

So to you we ascribe all our worship,
declaring: “The LORD rules over the
flood waters.The LORD reigns as king
forever.The LORD gives his people strength.

The LORD blesses them with peace (2)
“The heathen raged, the kingdoms were moved:

he uttered his voice, the earth melted.” (3)
