“The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands…” Psa. 19:1 (NIV)
“God’s glory is on tour in the skies; God-craft on exhibit across the horizon…” Psa. 19:1 (The Message – The Bible in contemporary language)
“The spacious heavens tell the glory of the Lord; the skies his work proclaim…” Psalter Hymnal, page 19.
When I wake up to views like these, and especially on Christmas Day, I cannot help but sing a song I’ve known since childhood:
” The heavens declare your glory, the firmament your power;
day unto day the story repeats from hour to hour.
Night unto night replying, proclaims in every land,
O Lord, with voice undying, the wonders of your hand.”
Psalter Hymnal, page 429
