As specks of sand and mere dust
A handbreadth and a vapour;
A fragile tender piece of art
We’re made by our Creator.
He’s fashioned us so beautifully
As a potter does the clay,
And has numbered all our years on earth
And established our every day.
He’s the only one to draw us near
With His power and full control,
Since mankind can only plant the seed
And wait for salvation to unfold.
Only God can heal our broken heart
When we surrender at His feet;
He restores us with His precious Word
When faith and hope both meet.
Only God will hear our cries for help
And only He bottles our tears;
He’s the only one to wipe our pain
And removes all doubt and fear.
Only by grace comes our salvation
Since our good works simply won’t save,
Along with any man-made feeble attempt
That negates Christ’s sacrifice made.
Only God deserves our worship
He is brilliant and perfect too;
He desires a relationship
As we honour all things true.
