How Majestic Is Thy Name by Alissa Robertshaw

It’s Thanksgiving, a time to reflect on all the blessings from the past year and a reminder to each of us to thank God for all his gifts. I wrote this song describing the beauty of the harvest season in upstate New York and thanking God using the words of King David. Thanks also to my dad for accompanying me on his guitar!

Listen on SoundCloud.

The petals open on the blossom and blow away on the wind.
Raindrops fall on the water, and waterfalls in the rain.
Seasons come and then they change again – weeks and months and days,
From spring planting to harvesting in the cornfield’s dusty haze.

When I consider your heavens,
The work of your fingers, the moon and stars, which you have set in place,
You rule in glory above, forever,
And from your creation ordained thy praise,
O Lord how majestic is thy name, O Lord how majestic is thy name.

Sun is shining on the beech leaves, throwing diamonds as they sway.
This golden autumn beauty is earth’s final colorful display.
High above storm clouds thunder, darkening the blinding day,
I stand below and wonder how you created earth this way.

When I consider your heavens,
The work of your fingers, the moon and stars, which you have set in place,
You rule in glory above, forever,
And from your creation ordained thy praise,
O Lord how majestic is thy name.

Lord I thank you for all the gifts you bestow throughout the year.
I thank you Lord every morning when the sunlight appears.

And I consider Your heavens,
The work of your fingers, the moon and stars, which you have set in place,
You rule in glory above, forever,
And from your creation ordained thy praise,
O Lord how majestic is thy name, O Lord how majestic is thy name.
