Psalm of Gratitude to the Creator

      The Lord has blessed the City of Puerto Princesa with His magnificent creation, a true wonder of nature...the world renowned St. Paul Subterranean River National Park, now known as Puerto Princesa Underground River (PPUR).  PPUR is the official entry of the Philippines and finalist to the global quest for the New 7 Wonders of Nature of the World.  

       In thanksgiving, I want to sing this song of praise to God, the Father Almighty, Creator of heaven and earth.

 An awesome God He is!

His infinite aesthetic sense
Formed the universe with no pretense.

An awesome God He is.
Behold His masterpiece!

A work of art penned from His heart;
stalactites and stalagmites
rock formation with nature’s fusion
sea and river converge together.

An awesome God He is.
Worship Him for His wondrous deeds!

A breathtaking mountain landscape
Captures the innocent with no escape.
Rain, beach and mangrove forest
Everything crafted with His zest!

O mighty God! Almighty One!
From the palm of Your hands
You created one
Great Underground River
in Puerto Princesa , Palawan.

In gratitude I sing You praises!
For in Your goodness 
You have shown Your greatness!
