There in the mystery before time began God reigned in completeness and harmony. There he moved to create all we know and share it with you and with me. He made mountains and music and rainbows and time, with pleasure they flowed from his beautiful mind.
God is delighted in all he has done, nothing can end all the joy he’s begun. His children delight in him through his own son. God is delighted in all he has done.
There in the stars or a smile of a child, we glimpse how his joy fills eternity. This is his pleasure to give us himself, his glory, his heaven, his peace. And soon all confusion will fade from our sight, with wonder we’ll dwell in his kingdom of light.
Perfectly wonderful, mystical joy sings for creations great dance. God bids us to join him in all that he has delighted to give us the chance.
