The Great I Am - Poem by Phyllis Wallin

You were the high and lofty One
Of eternity's habitation.
Your were the Word with an infinite plan
That brought forth all creation.

In all points of space You were there,
bringing chaos under control:
Reaching out into black nothingness,
Because light and love were Your goals.

You were the Word of Creation's dawning
When the great black void came alive,
As the thundering voice of
The Great I Am
Moved and began to strive.

The earth stood in space at Your command.
The sun and the moon became light.
The stars were flung from Your fingertips;
Then You blessed the beautiful sight.

As the blessings fell from the lips of God,
The morning stars sang their praise,
And the heavenly host became witness
Of the lovely beginning of days.
