The Expanse of the Cosmos by Raymond A. Foss

The expanse of the cosmos
the flicker of the flame
of human life
both are precious
in your holy sight

Creating all there is
our of nothing more than your thought
speaking the universe into creation
the work of your loving hands

Life breathed into us
from you, our Lord
raising us up
on trembling feet of clay

Set as sovereigns over the earth
walking the land
your servants in the garden
yet sheep under your care

Only by your love
your infinite grace
mindful of man
these we are a whisper
merely dust of the earth
