All this is nothing compared to you, O God. You're wondrously great, famously great.
Who can fail to be impressed by you, King of the nations? It's your very nature to be worshiped! Look far and wide among the elite of the nations. The best they can come up with is nothing compared to you.
But it is God whose power made the earth, whose wisdom gave shape to the world, who crafted the cosmos.
He thunders, and rain pours down. He sends the clouds soaring. He embellishes the storm with lightnings, launches wind from his warehouse.
