From The Slime To The Sublime - Poem by Royston Allen

Some believe we began in the primeval slime
back near the dawning of our earthly time.
A fortuitous concord of atoms are we
Evolving by chance throughout our history.

Composed of stardust and other chemistry
Just one of the higher mammals are you to me
A hominid made by natural selection
Formed when evolution altered our direction

We belong to no one and are all on our own
A member of the human race standing alone
Answerable only to ourselves and society
and are responsible for our own destiny

At the top of the evolutionary tree
On a planet in the Milky Way Galaxy
We'll be dethroned as evolution gathers pace
For we'll not always occupy the topmost place


***********

But we're created by God and fashioned by love
With a 'designer label' from our Lord above
'Made in God's image' is written for all to see
So fearfully and wonderfully made are we

'You are a new creation, ' we hear God say
'Born again and no longer made of earthly clay
A child of Mine all washed and cleansed and made anew
Set free from sin and Satan has no hold on you'

For The Almighty God says 'My child you are Mine
Made by Me and portraying My image divine
Moulded and fashioned by My tender, loving care
You are My family and My kingdom you'll share"

'You are so precious and important to Me
So special that I gave my life to set you free
And now you're walking along the heavenly way
On your journey home to Me', we hear our God say
