The Miracle in the Mirror

High above all things created

You’ve built Your throne of light

Sinless angels singing praises,

Your glory burning bright

Holy, holy, is the song

Your flaming seraphs sing

My highest thoughts can’t hope to grasp

the splendor of my King

Earth’s foundation, ocean borders,

You spoke them into being

Stars and planets, skies and mountains,

sing Your majesty

Fierce and loud, creation shouts

a hymn of endless praise

Do I dare to join this mighty song

that sets the sky ablaze?

Holy, holy, holy

Is the Lord of heaven’s armies

The earth is full of His glory

Holy, holy, holy

Your glory in my eye,

I see the state I’m in

Away from me Lord,

for I am a man of sin!

Your Word falls on my ear,

and speaks of Calvary

How my sins were washed away

when Jesus bled for me

And even now He pleads for me!

Holy, holy, holy

Is the Lord of heaven’s armies

My life is full of His glory

Holy, holy, holy

Far beyond my understanding

the miracle in the mirror

I see a man once lost and broken

now beg You to draw near

The sweetest echo of Your glory

throughout creation wild

Is knowing that You know me fully

and still You call me child!

Holy, holy, holy

Is the Lord of heaven’s armies

My life is full of His glory

Holy, holy, holy
