10 Worship Songs About Creation

1. A Thousand Hallelujahs – Brooke Ligertwood

Who else would rocks cry out to worship?
Whose glory taught the stars to shine?
Perhaps creation longs to have the words to sing
But this joy is mine

The first worship song about creation on our list is “A Thousand Hallelujahs.” These lyrics express the idea that all of creation, including inanimate objects such as rocks and stars, are inherently praising and worshiping God because of His glory and power. The lyrics suggest that even though creation may not have the ability to speak or sing, it is still expressing its worship of God.

Additionally, the lyrics suggest that the singer feels a sense of personal joy and connection in worshiping God, as if this ability to praise God is a privilege that is unique to human beings. The lyrics are aligning with the belief that all the creation is praising God and it’s a personal joy to join in that chorus of praise.

2. So Will I ( 100 Billion X ) – Hillsong UNITED

God of creation
There at the start
Before the beginning of time
With no point of reference
You spoke to the dark
And fleshed out the wonder of light

These lyrics are expressing the idea that God is the creator of all things, including the creation of the universe. The lyrics state that God was present at the beginning of time, before the universe existed. The lyrics also suggest that God created light out of darkness, which is an allusion to the biblical account of the creation of the world in the book of Genesis.

The lyrics also suggest that God’s creation is a wonder and a mystery that is beyond human understanding, as there is no point of reference for the beginning of time. Overall, the lyrics are expressing the belief in a powerful, all-knowing and all-powerful God as the creator of the universe.

3. Canvas and Clay – Pat Barrett

And when I doubt it, Lord, remind me
I’m wonderfully made
You’re an artist and a potter
I’m the canvas and the clay

The lyrics of this song draw an obvious connection between creation and the power of God. Though we may go through difficult times and feel forgotten, the chorus reminds us that nothing has been wasted, not even our mistakes. Instead they all serve a purpose – either towards our future, or for His glory and His name.

The imagery of being a canvas and clay in the hands of a potter leaves no doubt as to who is responsible for our creation – God Himself. It’s a beautiful reminder that He made us with love, before we even took our first breath. 

Whenever we start to doubt ourselves or feel overwhelmed by life’s hardships, these lyrics serve as a comforting balm – reminding us that though things may be hard right now, ultimately God has created us wonderfully and everything will work together for good in the end.

4. Christ Be Magnified – Cody Carnes

Were creation suddenly articulate
With a thousand tongues to lift one cry
Then from North to South and East to West
We’d hear Christ be magnified

These lyrics speak to the beauty of creation and its ability to declare its Creator’s glory. The lyrics imply that creation, in its current state, is not able to speak or praise, but if it could, it would do so with great enthusiasm and in unison from all directions (North to South, East to West). This lyrics suggest that the creation is longing and waiting to magnify Christ.

Overall, these lyrics convey the message that the creation is longing to praise and glorify God, and that if it could speak, it would use all of its strength and resources to do so, and that this praise would be heard all around the world. When it comes to worship songs about creation, this is one that can’t be missed.

5. What a Beautiful Name – Hillsong Worship

You were the Word at the beginning
One with God the Lord Most High
Your hidden glory in creation
Now revealed in You our Christ

These lyrics are expressing the belief that Jesus Christ, the Word, was present at the beginning of creation and that he is one with God the Lord Most High. The lyrics also allude to the idea that Jesus’ hidden glory was present in creation, but it is now revealed in him as the Christ.

The lyrics also express that Jesus didn’t want to have heaven without humanity, so he brought heaven down to earth by sacrificing himself for humanity’s sins. They also express that Jesus’ love is greater than human sin, and that nothing can separate humanity from him.

The lyrics also express that Jesus’ death on the cross was not the end, he was raised to life again, and that he is the ruler, the glory and the name above all names. They express that Jesus has no rival or equal, and that his reign is forever. Overall, these lyrics convey the message of the belief in Jesus Christ as the creator and savior of humanity, and that his power and glory are above all other names.

6. It Is Well – Bethel Music

Grander earth has quaked before
Moved by the sound of His voice
And seas that are shaken and stirred
Can be calmed and broken for my regard

The lyrics of this song convey a powerful message about the relationship between creation and God’s love for us. We are reminded that the earth quaked before His voice, that seas can be calmed and broken for our regard, and that through it all we should trust in Him and His Name.

It speaks to the power of trusting in God even when we cannot see what He is doing – as He will still speak and move with power. Finally, the chorus serves as an uplifting reminder of how when we place our eyes on Him, everything will be well with us.

7. Let There Be Light – Bryan and Katie Torwalt

When You speak
Darkness has to bow
Confusion has its final hour
When You speak
Mountains rise and fall
It tears down every wall arround me

These lyrics are expressing the idea that God’s word has the power to create light and overcome darkness, confusion and fear. The lyrics also express the idea that when God speaks, mountains rise and fall, and that his words have the power to tear down every wall around the individual. The lyrics also express the idea that when God speaks, he brings life to dust, and that his words are powerful enough to silence every fear and fill the individual with his spirit. 

The lyrics also express the idea that the individual wants God to have his way in their life, and that with just one word from God, they can be changed. The reference to the phrase “Let there be light” is also an allusion to the bible creation story in the book of Genesis where God spoke and created light. Overall, these lyrics convey the message of the belief in God’s power and authority over the natural world and the idea that God’s word has the power to bring light and overcome darkness, confusion, and fear in the individual’s life.

8. Unstoppable God – Elevation Worship

Heaven thundered
And the world was born
Life begins and ends in the dust You formed

This is my personal favorite worship song about creation on the list. These lyrics powerfully illustrate how God’s creative power is unstoppable. He thundered when He created the world and His voice commands everything – from mountains to freedom, mercy, and the defeat of sin. Miraculously, with just one word, darkness is denied and all chains are undone. Overall, these lyrics convey the message of the belief in God’s power and authority over the natural world and the idea that God is the creator and sustainer of life, and that his power is unstoppable and eternal.

9. Is He Worthy? – Chris Tomlin

Is all creation groaning?
(It is)
Is a new creation coming?
(It is)
Is the glory of the Lord to be the light within our midst?
(It is)
Is it good that we remind ourselves of this?
(It is)

These lyrics express the idea that creation is currently in a state of “groaning” or suffering, likely referencing the biblical concept of the 

“whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now” (Romans 8:22)

 They also express the idea that a new creation is coming and the glory of the Lord will be the light within it. The lyrics encourage the listener to remind themselves of this, suggesting that it’s important to hold on to this hope and belief. Overall, these lyrics convey the message of the belief in the current brokenness of the world but also the hope and belief in a new creation that will come, in which the glory of the Lord will be the light within it.

10. No One But You – Hillsong Worship

Who can melt the hardest heart
And speak life into my soul
Who can spin the world around
And hold me ever close

The last worship song about creation on our list is “No One But You.” These lyrics bring to life the awe inspiring power of God. He is the one who can speak life into our souls and walk us through life’s toughest challenges. He has made the righteous bright and loved us through our darkest hours in a thousand different ways.

The imagery of the sky lighting up, oceans roaring, rocks crying out, and mountains bowing in worship when we sing His praises makes it clear that God is ultimately responsible for our creation. He is the Lord of our soul, King of our hearts, and when we turn to Him, it is He who can make all things work together for our good.
