4. Ere God Had Built the Mountains

by Cowper
Ere God had built the mountains,
Or raised the fruitful hills;
Before He filled the fountains
That feed the running rills;
In Thee, from everlasting,
The wonderful I AM
Found pleasures never wasting,
And Wisdom is Thy name.
Proverbs 8:25; Proverbs 8:24; Proverbs 8:28; Proverbs 8:23; Exodus 3:14; Proverbs 8:30; Proverbs 8:1
When like a tent to dwell in,
He spread the skies abroad,
And swathed about the swelling
Of ocean's mighty flood,
He wrought by weight and measure;
And Thou wast with Him then:
Thyself the Father's pleasure,
And Thine, the sons of men.
Proverbs 8:27; Proverbs 8:29; Isaiah 40:12; Proverbs 8:30; Proverbs 8:31
And couldst Thou be delighted
With creatures such as we,
Who, when we saw Thee, slighted
And nailed Thee to a tree?
Unfathomable wonder!
And mystery divine!
The voice that speaks in thunder
Says, "Sinner, I am thine!"
Psalm 149:4
“Rejoicing in the habitable part of his earth; and my delights were with the sons of men.” (Proverbs 8:31)
“For the Lord taketh pleasure in his people: he will beautify the meek with salvation.” (Psalm 149:4)
