Vastness of God

The vastness of God

How great this Being

How awesome the Wonder

Infinite, sovereign and Living


The vastness of Almighty

Eternal, mind boggling power

So busy managing worlds

Wise hour by hour


The inconceivable vastness of Him

Who created you and me

Oh how magnanimous and miraculous

Presiding over endless galaxies


The sheer, stark immenseness of the Presence

So near and yet so far

We can only imagine Him over there

Resting His head upon a distant star


Our minds simply cannot conceive

Of such a Maker living in illimitable space

So very, very boundless is He

And is the only One of His royal race.


*Inspired by James Kenneth Johnson, my brother, to pen this poem about the vastness of our great God and King.
