The Worship Quote of the Week for (06/03/1997):

The Humblest Thing Worships God
This WORSHIP QUOTE brings back the theme of God's immeasurable greatness.


O burning Mountain, O chosen Sun,
O perfect Moon, O fathomless Well,
O unattainable Height, O Clearness beyond measure,
O Wisdom without end, O Mercy without limit,
O Strength beyond resistance, O Crown beyond all majesty:
The humblest thing you created sings your praise. AMEN!

-- Mechtild of Magdeburg, 13th century, as found in THE WORSHIPING CHURCH,
Hope Publishing Company, 1990.

[These lines remind me of the words from Psalm 100, "It is he that has made
us and not we ourselves." This is no false humility, but the worshipper
seeing himself or herself in a proper relationship with Creator God.]
