One Small Grain Of Sand - Poem by Nona Vaught

Vast forces of water, oceans deep
Can be considered so
As being held in place by one
Insignificant grain of sand.
Established by a perpetual decree
His Name is great in power and might.
The sea may toss but it cannot pass
A permanent boundary of sand.
Coupled to others equally formed
Hold back the waves that roar
Placed there by God's discretion,
One small grain of sand.
