Your Splendor Is Too Bright For Me

Oh Yah, who made the sky and sea,
And everything, including me;
Oh mighty one, who reigns on high,
What need have you for such as I?

Your domain seems to be complete,
With your strength none can compete.
I see no lack in what you’ve done,
How can you need such a lowly one?

You’ve made worlds beyond my view,
Awesome is the word for you.
You listen to the prayers I pray,
Yet you’re so high, and I’m of clay.

Your throne-rights you have shared with me,
Oh mighty God, how can this be?
But I am thankful just the same,
And bend my knee to praise your name.
