VERSE 1:
You’re the Word of God the Father,
From before the world began;
Every star and every planet
Has been fashioned by Your hand.
All creation holds together
By the power of Your voice:
Let the skies declare Your glory,
Let the land and seas rejoice!

CHORUS:
You're the Author of creation,
You're the Lord of every man;
And Your cry of love rings out
Across the lands.

VERSE 2:
Yet You left the gaze of angels,
Came to seek and save the lost,
And exchanged the joy of heaven
For the anguish of a cross.
With a prayer You fed the hungry,
With a word You stilled the sea.
Yet how silently You suffered
That the guilty may go free.

CHORUS:
You're the Author of creation,
You're the Lord of every man;
And Your cry of love rings out
Across the lands.

VERSE 3:
With a shout You rose victorious,
Wresting victory from the grave,
And ascended into heaven
Leading captives in Your way.
Now You stand before the Father
Interceding for Your own.
From each tribe and tongue and nation
You are leading sinners home.

CHORUS:
You're the Author of creation,
You're the Lord of every man;
And Your cry of love rings out
Across the lands.
