I Stand Amazed
by Alex Reece
(Fort Wayne, IN)
Every day I stand amazed by how far His hand can reach,
Finding my sin, He kindly begins, to allow my heart to be breached.
Every night I stand amazed by how far His arm can stretch,
Choosing to stay, guiding my way, reaching my final breath.
Every prayer I stand amazed by how His hand reaches my heart,
Finding my feelings, guiding my healings, as He always has from the start.
Every sight I stand amazed by what my eyes behold,
His creation, my free nation, the stories His book has told.
Every hour I stand amazed by His children and their deeds,
Helping the needy, giving so freely, and love to fill our needs.
Every wrong I stand amazed by how His forgiveness suffices,
Never ending, always defending His sinners through sacrifices.
Every passage I stand amazed by all He has to say,
Showing the truth, teaching the youth, guiding us all the way.
Every song I stand amazed by the voices joining to praise,
Making His music, the people he uses, to do His work all of His days.
Every day, every night,
Every prayer, every sight,
Every hour, every wrong,
Every passage, every song,
I stand amazed.
