God and Father and our LORD Jesus Christ

Thought about a song we sing in church

Lord, You are more precious than silver.
Lord, You are more costly than gold.
Lord, You are more beautiful than diamonds, and
Nothing I desire compares with You.

Always loved this song, but recently, thinking about it I thought, how can we compare the creator and one who sustains the universe in such paltry words. What value is silver, gold or diamonds compared to God.

What came to mind was taking the tear falling from ones eye, and comparing it to the oceans of the world. It is our Creator and LORD who made the silver, the gold and the diamonds. Moreover, He gave mankind a mind to wonder and explore, and so these things were revealed.


LORD you created the Silver we love
LORD you who created all the gold
LORD these diamonds are wonderful
But all are nothing  compared with YOU.

OK, it doesn't fit the tune but Oh LORD God of Heaven and Earth, I rejoice in YOU.
