Lord of Creation

Lord of creation, to You be all praise!
Most mighty Your working, most wondrous Your ways!
Your glory and might are beyond us to tell,
And yet in the heart of the humble You dwell.
Lord of all power, I give You my will,
In joyful obedience Your tasks to fulfill.
Your bondage is freedom; Your service is song;
And held in your keeping, my weakness is strong.
Lord of all wisdom, I give You my mind,
Rich truth that surpasses man's knowledge to find;
What eye has not seen and what ear has not heard
Is taught by Your Spirit and shines from Your Word.
Lord of all being, I give You my all;
If I ever disown You, I stumble and fall;
But led in Your service Your word to obey,
I'll walk in Your freedom to the end of the way.

I especially like the second stanza. The third line reminds me of a text that I really enjoy the imagery from.

"As for you, because of the blood of my covenant with you, I will free your prisoners from the waterless pit. Return to your fortress, O prisoners of hope; even now I announce that I will restore twice as much to you." ~Zechariah 9:11,12

I love the idea of being prisoners of hope, and how Christ's "bondage" is freedom. Thanks for sharing :)
