*801 God Is Lovely - Poem by John Knight

O Lord - give us your steadfast Love
With our minds we believe in you
With our hearts we always love you
With our voices we worship you
With all our talents we serve you.
O Lord - give us your steadfast Love.

By your word Lord - the Earth was formed
Shout for joy for His Righteousness
Give thanks and praise for His Mercy
Sing out to the Lord a new song
Praise Him for all His love to us
By your word Lord - the Earth was formed.

The Lord regards us from Heaven
He sees all the people on Earth
He knows us individually
He plans for all generations
He blesses those who trust in Him.
The Lord regards us from Heaven.

The Humanists have said - NO GOD
Where you there when He created.....
The Sun and the Solar System?
The Moon to give us light at night?
The mineral cycles of the Earth?
The Humanists have said - NO GOD

O Lord give us your steadfast Love
By your word Lord the Earth was formed
O Lord give us your steadfast Love
The Lord regards us from Heaven
O Lord give us your steadfast Love
The Humanists have said - NO GOD
O Lord give us your steadfast Love.

Tha Poem is dedicated to the whole of the PH Family.
Between us we represent many Faiths and World Views.
All Scriptures teach us that we are made in God's Image,
this distinguishes us from the other Animals and ensures
if we reach out to God - He is always there to greet us.
This availability evokes my title GOD IS LOVELY!

    the poem is like a song... a good song. The title is catchie and interesting. Sometimes I feel embarrassed when I post poems about God but I am not a slave of my bad thoughts and feelings that's why i take the courage to write and post these kind of poems (Report) Reply
