"God sovereignly made me - the first, the basic - before he did anything else.
I was brought into being a long time ago, well before Earth got its start.
I arrived on the scene before Ocean, yes, even before Springs and Rivers and Lakes.
Before Mountains were sculpted and Hills took shape, I was already there, newborn;
Long before God stretched out Earth's Horizons, and tended to the minute details of Soil and Weather,
And set Sky firmly in place, I was there. When he mapped and gave borders to wild Ocean,
built the vast vault of Heaven, and installed the fountains that fed Ocean,
When he drew a boundary for Sea, posted a sign that said, no trespassing, And then staked out Earth's foundations,
I was right there with him, making sure everything fit. Day after day I was there, with my joyful applause, always enjoying his company,
Delighted with the world of things and creatures, happily celebrating the human family.
