Indescribable ~ Day 25: Hymns of Praise

There are 6 more days left in this 31 Day series and SO many more songs that I could write about.  The amount of beautiful praise hymns, both old and new, is really overwhelming.

I mentioned a week or so ago that one of my favorite Christian artist is Chris Tomlin, however, one of my favorite Chris Tomlin songs wasn’t even written by him.  Indescribable was written by Laura Story, a SC girl…like me.  It is a beautiful song that, in my opinion, sums up what praise and worship really is.

We really can’t do justice the honor and praise that we should give to the Lord.  His majesty is revealed in the mountains, in the sea, and in everything in between.  And truly, there are no words.  That’s why this song really is perfect to me.

Laura Story began writing this song while driving down a mountain road.  She later finished it at a piano after reading Job 38.  I pray that the description of God given in the words she wrote will bring you to place of worship.

From the highest of heights to the depths of the sea
Creation’s revealing Your majesty
From the colors of fall to the fragrance of spring
Every creature unique in the song that it sings
All exclaiming

Indescribable, uncontainable
You placed the stars in the sky
And You know them by name
You are amazing, God

All powerful, untameable
Awestruck we fall to our knees
As we humbly proclaim
You are amazing, God

Who has told every lightning bolt where it should go
Or seen heavenly storehouses laden with snow
Who imagined the sun and gives source to its light
Yet, conceals it to bring us the coolness of night
None can fathom

Indescribable, uncontainable
You placed the stars in the sky
And You know them by name
You are amazing, God

All powerful, untameable
Awestruck we fall to our knees
As we humbly proclaim
You are amazing, God
You are amazing, God

Indescribable, uncontainable
You placed the stars in the sky
And You know them by name
You are amazing God

All powerful, untameable
Awestruck we fall to our knees
As we humbly proclaim
You are amazing God

Indescribable, uncontainable
You placed the stars in the sky
And You know them by name
You are amazing, God

Incomparable, unchangeable
You see the depths of my heart
And You love me the same
You are amazing, God
You are amazing, God

Joy to You!
