There in the mystery before time began
God reigned in completeness and harmony
There he moved to create all we know
And share it with you and with me
He made mountains and music and rainbows and time
With pleasure they flowed from his beautiful mind.
God is delighted in all he has done
Nothing can end all the joy he's begun
His children delight in him through his own son
God is delighted in all he has done.
There in the stars or a smile of a child
We glimpse how his joy fills eternity
This is his pleasure to give us himself
His glory, his heaven, his peace
And soon all confusion will fade from our sight
With wonder we'll dwell in his kingdom of light.
Perfectly wonderful, mystical joy
Sings for creations great dance
God bids us to join him in all
That he has delighted to give us the chance.
