Further Reflections on Scripture References
Stanza 1 refers to God’s work of hanging the heavens and laying the sea and land, a clear reference to the work described in Genesis 1.
A reference to “every nation, every land” in stanza 2 reminds us of the intial promise to Abraham in Genesis 12:1-3. We also hear the call to the nations of the world in Psalms 97 and 99.
In stanza 3, the reference to God’s watchful eye through all the ages calls to mind the testimony of Psalm 90.
