Song from Bits and Pieces and More, “I Am”

This poem from Bits and Pieces and More is actually a song:

I Am

When God stepped out into space, and hung the earth there in its place,
When He measured the oceans in the palm of His hand,
When He brightened up the night with the stars all shining bright;
He was saying to the world: “I Am.
I Am, I Am, and there is no God beside Me — I am.”
And when He draped the clouds to hold the water safe within their fold,
He was saying to the world, “I Am.”

When God carved the mountains high and stretched the trees up to the sky,
When He set the shining rainbow a’glowing through the rain,
When He scooped a valley low where a singing brook would flow,
He was saying to the world: “I Am.
I Am, I Am, and there is no God beside Me — I am.”
And when He shaped the lily’s bloom, gave Rose of Sharon sweet perfume,,
He was saying to the world, “I Am.”

When God breathed life into man to bring about His wondrous plan,
When He sent the prophets crying of a dying Lamb,
And when He hung there on the tree, and shed His blood for you and me,
He was saying to the world: “I Am.
I Am, I Am, and there is no God beside Me — I am.”
When He had suffered for our sin and died.. and rose again!,
He was saying to the world, “I Am.”
And He’s still saying to the world, “I Am.”
