Come, let us praise the Lord above
who is the great I AM;
His greatness is unsearchable;
make known to men His deeds.

His deeds were from the start of time -
we know that from His Word
and He will be when time has ceased
the everlasting God.

Yet, how will I begin the praise?
What deed will be the first?
How can I, a mortal man,
record omnipotence?

Yet, there’s a deed I’ve heard about
which I MUST know firsthand.
“Oh Christ, who suffered on the cross,
please save me from my sins!”

Come, let us praise the Lord above
who is the great I AM;
His deeds reflect His many names -
and “Savior” is the best!

     Many people fabricate stories about themselves to appear “greater” than they are.  Achievements are spoken about which never occurred, financial worth is greatly exaggerated, college degrees are lied about, etc.
     But Christians don’t have to worry about God’s greatness being overrated.  Psalms 145:3 states:  “Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised; and his greatness is unsearchable.”  Jeremiah 10:6 states:  “...there is none like unto thee, O LORD; thou art great, and thy name is great in might.”  And then Psalms 147:5 says this about God:  “Great is our Lord, and of great power: his understanding is infinite.”
     So let us be amazed once more of God’s great deeds in the Old Testament - like His leading of David from being a watcher of sheep to His placement of David upon the throne of Israel.
     And in the New Testament let us rejoice over the summation of His greatest deed as written in John 3:16 - “God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
     Then after our souls have been enraptured over the greatness of some of God’s deeds, let us go forth and do what Psalms 105:1 exhorts us to do:  “...make known his deeds among the people.”
