Keaggy Week – Day 5

In the passages I’ve been reading in Isaiah the last several days, I am reminded of God, His power, His majesty.  With that said, here is an incredible Phil Keaggy song entitles “Maker of the Universe.”

The Maker of the universe, 
As Man for man was made a curse. 
The claims of Law which He had made, 
Unto the uttermost He paid. 
His holy fingers made the bough, 
Which grew the thorns that crowned His brow. 
The nails that pierced His hands were mined 
In secret places He designed. 

He made the forest whence there sprung 
The tree on which His body hung. 
He died upon a cross of wood, 
Yet made the hill on which it stood. 
The sky that darkened o’er His head, 
By Him above the earth was spread. 
The sun that hid from Him it’s face 
By His decree was poised in space. 

The spear which spilled His precious blood 
Was tempered in the fires of God. 
The grave in which His form was laid 
Was hewn in rocks His hands had made. 

The throne on which He now appears 
Was His from everlasting years. 
But a new glory crowns His brow 
And every knee to Him shall bow.
