Sonnet on the Greatness of Our Creator (A Weekly Post)

What place could endeavor to contain You?
The heavens above are Your royal seat
The earth below is a stool for Your feet
Even galaxies cannot contain You.
Yet You look on one who is humble, who
Is bruised of spirit and lowly and weak
Who trembles at every word You speak.
Oh, what an amazing wonder that You
Would humbly take on flesh and die and rise
To save our souls, salvation to impart.
What a wonder– You Who created time
And carved out the earth and stretched out the skies
Would desire to live in a human heart–
Would desire to live in this heart of mine.

Corresponds to Exodus 35:21 and Isaiah 66:1+2

Awesome Truth (A Weekly Post)

I see this universe You made
It leaves me feeling so amazed.
Wherever I look I see Your art
Then faster pumps my beating heart–
My heart– which You have formed; as well
As every molecule and cell.

Then I open Exodus
And read of how You dwelt with us.

The King of all this world grand
Came down to live with mortal man?

This awesome truth amazes me
And fills me with humility.

Corresponds to Exodus 25:8

Call Me (Re-posted As a Weekly Post)

Call me further, call me higher
Call me up to heights anew
And though I walk with few in number
This I know– I walk with You

Call me further, call me higher
Though my heart be punctured through
And though in pain and grief I suffer
Turn my eyes to heavenly views

And when at last my breathing falters
And my coming death is due
Call me further, call me higher
Call me up to be with You

Corresponds to Exodus 24
