Archive for the ‘this is my work and glory’ Category

A few weeks ago
On a cold dark winter’s night
The stars seemed aglow
Millions, beautiful and bright

I turned to read again
With great wonder and awe
About the creation
What Moses learned from God

There are worlds without number!
Created by the Son
Each through His priesthood order
For God’s purposed, done

Hubble scientists say
We are but one galaxy
Of billions far away
All for His work and glory

To fathom that He knows me
And waits for my return
Helps me ponder where I’m going
And for what do I yearn?

I am a part of all that I see
The light which I fell
From God there is no hiding
I know He is real

I want to please Him
And tell others, too
He is the reason
I smile anew

  1. “This Is My Work and Glory” – general-conference

With great wonder and awe
About the creation

There are worlds without number
All created by the Son
Through the priesthood, order
For God’s purposes, done

Hubble scientists say
We are, but one galaxy
Of billions, far away
All for His work and glory

To bring to pass salvation
For His spirit children
Some, to eternally station
Where He can be with them

For a place He prepares
Make we make room for Him in our hearts
In our journey, He shares
And awaits us beyond the stars

This is My Work and Glory

Ensign, May 2013
