David Testifies That the Heavens Declare the Glory of God

Psalm 19:1

1 The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork.

President Gordon B. Hinckley said:

“Believe in Jesus Christ, the Son of God, the greatest figure of time and eternity. Believe that His matchless life reached back before the world was formed. Believe that He was the Creator of the earth on which we live. Believe that He was Jehovah of the Old Testament, that He was the Messiah of the New Testament, that He died and was resurrected, that He visited these western continents and taught the people here, that He ushered in this final gospel dispensation, and that He lives, the living Son of the living God, our Savior and our Redeemer.

“John says of the creation that ‘all things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made’ (John 1:3).

“Can any man who has walked beneath the stars at night, can anyone who has seen the touch of spring upon the land doubt the hand of divinity in creation? So observing the beauties of the earth, one is wont to speak as did the Psalmist: ‘The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork. Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge’ (Psalm 19:1–2).

“All of beauty in the earth bears the fingerprint of the Master Creator.”
