Canvas of the Sky

The Canvas of the Sky

Consider all the ways the shades of gold and blue
Mix across the open sky in every shade and hue
The trees that grow so mighty, reaching towards the sky
The mountains standing proudly, ascending up on high

Who is the artist, with paintbrush in hand
Creating beauty across the land
Who is the artist, a constant supply
Of splendor and majesty on the canvas of the sky

The morning’s rising sun, declaring all is new
The stillness in the air, the early misty dew
The power of the ocean, the waves who all return
The rivers and the streams, new views at every turn

Chorus

The moon hung in the dark, the starry sky at night
The sun in all its glory giving off its light
The lion and the lamb, the birds up in the air
Everything that takes a breath, a baby so fair

Chorus x 2

Background

Ever noticed the sky?  I mean, REALLY notice the sky?  I was on a long road trip where I saw many sunrises, many sunsets, skylines, trees ... and it struck me.  Even if I didn't believe in a Creator God, I think I would be struck by the artwork that is displayed daily in the world around me. 

So I asked the question, "Who is the artist?" 

Romans 1:20 says,
20For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse.

In other words, the creation points to a Creator.  And He displays this handiwork across the canvas of the sky.
