God and God Alone

This afternoon I attended the awards presentation and reception for God's Creation Is Good; I didn't win a prize, but I can add to my résumé that all three of my entries were chosen for a selective juried show! Now I need to bust my gut to get some stuff ready for Art Walk and for St. Mark's Spring Liturgical Art exhibit. (Actually, most everything in this show was digitized and enhanced photography; mine were the only ones I'd describe as liturgical art.) But I'm mainly blogging because Shelley sang this amazingly beautiful song, and very surprisingly it's an oldie from 1984, yet new to me, which gives me such hope when I imagine I already know the outcomes of so much. I got to hear it about 2.5 times, since I sat in the sanctuary after viewing the exhibit and listened to her rehearse. I sat with Shelley at Summer Pops for Aaron Neville's concert, and it was great to be able to hear her gorgeous singing and give her a hug. The other songs were All Things Bright and Beautiful and by the congregation, too, This Is My Father's World. At the end of this blog I've included clickable thumbnails of my entries.

God and God Alone

God and God Alone
God and God alone
Created all these things we call our own
From the might to the small
The glory in them all
Is God's and God's alone

God and God alone
Reveals the truth of all we call unknown
All the best and worst of man
Can't change the master plan
It's God's and God's alone

God and God alone
Is fit to take the universe's throne
Let everything that lives
Reserve its truest praise
For God and God alone

God and God alone
Will be the joy of our eternal home
He will be our one desire
Our hearts will never tire
Of God and God alone
