Like a wave in the ocean

That stands tall but fades away;

Like a flower that soon wilts

Lord you’ve numbered all our days.

Out of nothing you’ve created

All marvellous creatures great and small;

May we respond with much humility

When our name You call.

To those who seek Your face

You restore and gently heal;

You forgive and reconcile

Through Your grace and sovereign will.

You’re a Father to the fatherless

And You protect the widow too;

Your hand reaches to the homeless

To restore their hope in You.

Most know they’re in rebellion

Towards a God perfect and true,

But the opinions of society

Hold a higher place than You.

But how can the clay dictate

When the Potter’s in control?

Since Your guiding hand it fashions

So Your perfect plan unfolds.

All glory and all honour

To the name above all names;

Jesus Christ forevermore

Today and yesterday the same.
