Three Heavens - Poem by Richard Merrell

Have you ever stopped to think
Taken one thought about the Lord;
Or considered this Earth you stand upon
Did you ever read in God's Word?

That there are three heavens;
The first contains the air
The second holds the whirling spheres
The third? well God dwells there.

In the first there are the clouds
The winds that blow, the rain
Where birds fly on a summers day
And sing their sweet refrain.

In the second there is the sun
The moon and stars at night
This heaven bears the spinning orbs;
Appoints their path of flight.

In the third God does dwell
Above all time and space;
Who controls all things by his great hand
And sustains all by his grace.

2 Corinthians 12: 1-5
