Keeper of the Stars Above

Inspired by Isaiah 40 and Psalm 139

Keeper of the stars above,
You know them all by name.
Where did You learn Your endless love,
From whom did You knowledge gain?

All these stars up in the sky,
I could never count or tell.
You know every mountain high,
Each water drop, You know it well.

Keeper of my every day,
You know my mind, my heart.
Where did You learn Your loving ways,
From whom did You learn this art?

All my thoughts, before I talk,
Are known by You, my Lord.
You know the every path I walk,
Always You know my words.

Such love is too deep for my soul to know,
Too high for my heart to go.
Oh, how great is Your love,
How many Your thoughts of me!
More than all the stars above,
The grains of sand by the sea.
 
Keeper of the stars above,
You know them all by name.
You created me in love,
You carefully wrought my frame.
You knew the days for me ordained,
When none of them had come.

You took my sins, my soul You saved,
My trespasses, the sum,
You washed away, yes, You forgave,
And saw past what I’d done.
You tenderly looked beyond my stains,
To who I could become!

Keeper of the stars above,
You know them all by name.
Keeper of my every breath,
I praise You once again!
