Today... 'The Creator Of Heaven And Earth' - Poem by Roy Allen

Each sub atomic particle
sprang into being at your call.
You formed the greatest galaxy
when You spoke the words 'Let there be'

All things You have created Lord
by Your powerful spoken word.
In You all things are kept in harmony
Without You Lord, nothing would be.

Creator of the universe
Your creation is so diverse
Things immeasurable to man
are measured by You in a span

In this scale of diversity
such smallness and immensity.
Somewhere in between them fits man
who is central in Your great plan.

When You created man Oh Lord
it was not by Your spoken word.
Instead You knelt upon the ground
gathered the dust into a mound.

Atoms knitted together there
forming man with such tender care.
There as the lips of God met his
life then entered him with a kiss.

The Bible calls You by many names
each one giving a glimpse of Your glory.
Like a cut diamond radiating in the sun
with every facet depicting an aspect
of Your Divine Nature.
Today I have thought of You as
'The Creator of heaven and earth'
