His Mighty Hands

I was looking through a book of songs I have written when I came across this I hymn I wrote to the music “Londonderry Aire” when one of our sons was part of a team building a full size rocket “The Canadian Arrow”.

His Mighty Hands

Words: © 2001 Mollie Pearce McKibbon


Beyond the earth, stars shine within the universe

While other worlds revolve around their suns.

Our eyes look up to God’s amazing canopy

And our hearts praise the wondrous work He’s done.


For God is Lord of all that is around us.

His mighty hands have shaped and formed it all,

And we are loved so dearly that He gave his Son,

The willing sacrificial Lamb for one and all.


Stardust and dreams go whirling through the atmosphere;

Rainbows and love are part of God’s design.

There is no limit to His power and artistry;

It all delights and challenges our minds.


Because of God, we have our place upon the earth,

And He alone deserves our trust and awe,

For everyone is part of God’s eternal plan;

To love each other is his sacred law.
