At the dawn of creation the powerful voice of the Lord was heard over the waters. God spoke and the world took shape as we know it today.
The Israelites heard the voice of the Lord as they stood beside the waters of the Red Sea. Thunder resounded across the heavens and lightning lit up the world while God dried up the Red Sea (Ps 77:16-19).

The voice of the Lord can be heard today speaking majestic words filled with life and grace.

Do you hear the voice of the Lord who sits enthroned in the heavens above the cacophony of sounds clamoring for your attention in our modern, hyper-connected world?
Ascribe to the Lord, you heavenly beings,
ascribe to the Lord glory and strength.
Ascribe to the Lord the glory due his name;
worship the Lord in the splendor of his holiness.
The voice of the Lord is over the waters;
the God of glory thunders,
the Lord thunders over the mighty waters.
The voice of the Lord is powerful;
the voice of the Lord is majestic.
The voice of the Lord breaks the cedars;
the Lord breaks in pieces the cedars of Lebanon.
He makes Lebanon leap like a calf,
Sirion like a young wild ox.
The voice of the Lord strikes
with flashes of lightning.
The voice of the Lord shakes the desert;
the Lord shakes the Desert of Kadesh.
The voice of the Lord twists the oaks
and strips the forests bare.
And in his temple all cry, “Glory!”
The Lord sits enthroned over the flood;
the Lord is enthroned as King forever.
The Lord gives strength to his people;
the Lord blesses his people with peace.
