Moon Song

By Melissa McLaughlin

I hear you, oh glistening moon

Hanging way up there by nothing at all

Displaying your hushed radiance

Bold and steady, singing through dark night skies with silver white force

Outshining city lights with the brilliance of angels

A call to see

To see

Not your own vast glowing beauty

But a call to see the One who made such

A call to see the One who glows brighter still

At first glance, all is silent

Sing again, oh glistening moon, sing again

The world needs your song

The world waits for your song

The world wonders at your song

Slowly your nightly chorus rises

Then echoes out again and again…

Glory to God, oh heavens and earth!

Glory to God!

Glory to God, oh sun, moon and stars!

Glory to God!

Glory to God, oh peoples of the earth!

Glory to God!

Psalm 8:3-4, 8 When I consider your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is mankind that you are mindful of them, human beings that you care for them? Oh Lord, our Lord, how majestic is Your name in all the earth.
Psalm 67:3May the peoples praise you, God; may all the peoples praise you.
