Today... 'God only wise'
Wisdom unfathomable, God only wise
so incomprehensible in human guise.
To men unbelievable, How can this be?
It’s so inconceivable, He was like me.
Manhood and full Deity combined in flesh
in human frailty such holiness.
I fall down and worship. His anthem raise
for He is so worth it, worthy of praise.

All quotations ©NIV
The Bible calls You by many names
each one giving a glimpse of Your glory.
Like a cut diamond radiating in the sun
with every facet depicting a glorious
aspect of Your Divine Nature.
Today I have thought of You as
“God only wise”
