SING THE SONG

No thought of God can ever be

As life changing as Calvary!

Of course, He made man and the process, too!

True love, sure, they know what to do!

.

.

God made that child a true miracle!

Cannot blame glands or a follicle!

A touch not merely compatible

Resulting in fingers prehensile!

.

.

Surely God loves us, contrastingly

Far above anything we can see!

And in the frame that He made us in,

Cannot be construed as sin!

.

.

Adam and Eve begat a Cain

Then an Able, later slain!

In sin we were conceived, yes, true,

But what is a person ever to do?

.

.

Jesus showed us that cross on a hill!

Sinners saved by Grace!  Truly his will!

“Conceived in Liberty,” true also!

Christian the liberty, we know!

.

.

In dedication to Calvary’s Cross

No, we can never suffer loss!

What God intended  multiply!

When sanctified by marriage, not a lie!

.

.

When sanctified above marriage vows,

Cannot be wrong, it is what God allows!

In fact, condones and multiplies!

.

.

What is the difference?  Let me explain.

A vow binds, means God is in the lane

Depending on Him to bless the home,

Says, you are not thinking of going alone.

.

.

Big difference between love and lust!

Sure, life-long commitment!

Not rust to dust!

When God is at center cannot go wrong!

Make Him your centerpiece!  Sing the song!

THE YEAR OF THE LORD

Adam and Eve in the Garden, yes, they did surely die!

True, they lived on for centuries, that in the Eternal eye,

.

Was a mere drop in a bucket; it was not even a day. (*)

The Bible says that a thousand years, in God’s sight, is but a day!

.

Man would have lived on forever!  One grain of sand by the sea

Could never begin to measure up or fit the analogy!

.

Infinity is the measure of space, space that has no end.

Just as eternity goes on and on and is hard to comprehend!

.

The angels are not eternal for they were created, too.

The angels are everlasting just the same as me and you!

.

Yes, man will live forever and where?  That depends on his aim!

If he cares not about heaven his future?  Oh, what a shame!

.

The Godhead, blessed Trinity, the matchless Three in One

Cooperated together and the universe was begun!

.

Yes, begun, for creation continues a world that has no end!

Can man confine the Eternal?  No, he will neither break or bend.

.

Who cannot confine the Eternal?  Do not you know He died long ago?

When God dies, we die too.  Who keeps us going?  Surely you know!

.

Our Eternal God, in infinity, impossible to trace!

So what really does keep us spinning?  Only His love and grace!

.

Consider the brain, so intricate, only God’s love could inspire!

Our brain is a miniscule fraction yet we presume to conspire!

.

Give up?  Nothing like this could evolve or start from whatever they say.

The suns, worlds in perfect control through time, like, night and day!

.

Now a glance at division of time, was God involved in this too?

Before Christ and after, Anno Domini, infinite and true! (**)

WHAT VOICE

Since I am losing my sight and my hearing

And I am older than Adam and Eve,

I do not know, anymore, what I am good for

For certain I am not going to grieve.

.

.

I have forgotten where it is I come from

But where I am going I know well!

I can hear the voice of God, a mere whisper,

I do not need a clanging dinner bell!

.

.

So what did God say?  He said, “Keep writing!”

Same thing I always feel He says.

Not that He says it, like, audibly,

Just a couple of times I confess.

.

.

Well, how can I know when God is speaking?

Or how can I recognize His voice?

I know I want to do what I am doing

So I figure it seems I have no choice.

.

.

If I just wrote crazy stuff I would wonder

But I write what God puts on my heart!

And some tell me that it is a blessing

So what it is I do not need a cart.

.

.

I do not need a cart full of ‘thank you’s’

Just to realize I am doing God’s will.

For this is the talent that He gave me

And someday I will send you a bill!

.

.

IS THERE HOPE

Adam and Eve in the Garden, yes, they did surely die.

True, they lived on for centuries but in the eternal eye

.

Was a mere drop in a bucket it was not even a day. (1)

For while, “As a day is as a thousand years,” (2) a thousand years but a day!

.

Man would have lived on eternally!  One grain of sand by the sea

Could never begin to measure up or fit the analogy.

.

For infinity is the measure of space that has no bounds or end!

Just as eternity continues on!  It is hard to comprehend!

.

The angels are not eternal for they were created, too!

The angels are everlasting just the same as me and you!

.

Yes, man will live forever and where depends on his aim!

If he cares not about Heaven, his future?  Oh, what a shame!

.

The Godhead, the blessed Trinity, the matchless three in One,

Cooperated, conspired, and the universe was begun!

.

Yes, begun for creation continues!  It is a world without end!

Can man confine the eternal?  He will neither break nor bend!

.

Why cannot we confine the eternal?  When we claim He died long ago,

If God dies we die, too.  Who keeps us spinning?  Do not you know?

.

I am sorry you gave in so easily.  I would love to argue His case!

So what really does keep us spinning?  Only His love and grace!

.

Consider the brain, so intricate, only God’s love could conspire.

And what or who keeps the heart pumping blood?  The wind?  The fire?

.

Give up!  Nothing like this could evolve or start from whatever they say

The sun, the worlds in perfect control through time, like, night and day!

.

Another thing, division of time was not God involved in this?

Before Christ and after (3) so why not cease and desist!

.

.

(1) 2 Peter 3:8

(2) In God’s eyes

(3) Before Christ and A.D. (Anno Domini) the Year of The Lord

ISAIAH 53

“He was wounded for our transgressions,

Bruised for our iniquities:

Chastisement of our peace was upon Him;

And with His stripes we are healed.”

.

.

It was my sins that put Him on that cross,

Every vile deed I had done!

He did not deserve but went willingly

Because He is the Only One–

.

.

Sinless, who could assume all our sins.

Mine, yours back to Adam and Eve

The Only One with no sin at all!

The Only Perfect One!

.

.

Godhead decreed as was prophesied

That Jesus would give His life

As a vile sinner for every sin,

To end sins death and strife!

.

.

Equip, yes, for heavens eternity,

Deserving of hell though we!

Punishment He took every lash!

Already half dead, for me!

.

.

Created us so he is responsible?

Is that not what we believe?

Then did He not assume it all,

On that black Calvary?

.

.

He died as a sinner, criminal yet!

Christ, The One Sinless One!

Capital punishment the cross!

Lifer, the chair, like, hung!

.

.

“God is Spirit,” the Three in One.

Dare any deny?

The Almighty, only Creator!

For all mankind to die!

.

.

Excruciating the death pinioned up there!

Suffering why?  You and me!

From the very beginning of time (*)

Torture determinedly!

.

.

Since it was love that put Him there,

Love only God can know.

The hateful defiled the hideous,

He died for all below!

.

.

(*)  God always was, contemplate but believe!

.

Sam Cox 11.04.10

GOD HAS A PURPOSE FOR ALL

God who created us for joy

Unspeakable, defenseless.

The Adam and Eve did something wrong

Sin from then on, endless!

.

.

Eternity truly in His plan

Loves all that He made!

Some of it we cannot understand

But do not know how we would trade.

.

.

Insect world and germology

Not disannulled by me

I cannot understand all He did

Microbes or yet the flea.

.

.

But all, everything has purpose

True!  Fundamentally!

God over all did everything!

All purposefully!

.

.

No mistakes in anything

The fish breathing in water,

Tadpoles turn into something else.

Did Eve have a daughter?

.

.

Snakes have a purpose, truly do!

Some fish in rivers and seas

Devour others and we eat,

Some good for you and me!

.

.

Many who doubt eternal life,

Suppose we die like dogs!

So glad God had a purpose for all,

Including maybe frogs.

.

.

Frog legs delicious many folk consider

And remember God does know all!

For everything there is a purpose!

We die but live on God’s call!

.

.

Call of the wild is for many understood

And Cain killed his brother, too!

Wonder what became of that killer,

I have nothing better to do!

.

.

Now that I am way too old to work

Just sit and write poetry!

Used to sell some now just to give

To anyone for free.

.

.

And it is a pleasure!  God’s gift to me!

No need for money anymore,

As we all know it grows on trees

And that is what they are budding for!

.

.

Gifts from God, way out of reason!

Air we breathe included!

Sin to shine every season,

Nothing is excluded!

.

.

Cannot imagine nor try anymore,

The joy unspeakable true!

Fly with angels visiting stars!

Just everything left to do!

.

.

No end!  Eternity!

.

.

The Sam 11.14

WON – LOST

He suffered pain in Galilee,

And near everywhere, too!

The city of Jerusalem,

Wept over that place anew!

 

 

Whole nights He spent in agony,

The sins of Adam and Eve,

Transmitted to all creation

In need of blest reprieve!

 

 

Why chose He those disciples?

Their willingness to obey?

They left all to follow Him

Recalled what He had to say!

 

 

All left their mark in history

Including the one who conveyed

Hypocritical love for the Master

The very one he betrayed!

 

 

But we keep our eyes on Heaven

Walking through hell on earth.

Remembering that blessed earth family

Heaven’s body in earthly birth.

 

 

The pinnacle of pain He reached

Once nailed up to that cross.

Comparing to the agony of

The calloused souls He lost!
