“Coming down from God out of heaven?”

New heaven and earth shall be

Forever glorify our King of Kings,

Then we will know eternity!



Eternity means no more than life evermore!

Eternity is God designed!

Whatever man may boast, all he can do

Only God!  Man halts at that line!



We will live forever but God always was!

God created everything!

Admit that you cannot understand it all!

Finitely we to Him cling!



The stars above He has counted them all!

He gave to each one its own name! (1)

Pleiades of Taurus, Antares all the stars

And each one unique, none the same!



Great is God’s power!  His understanding, too!

Infinite His wisdom! Agree? (2)

Beyond imagination beyond all our means

We are but mortality!



So now consider His mercy and His grace,

Not just His power but His love!

“Heals the brokenhearted, binds up our wounds.” (3)

Fits us for heaven above!



A mighty blast of thunder!  Spinning galaxies!

A sparrow falls, what?  The Father sees?

Not only sees He cares!  He reaches out!

By His Spirit, He our spirit frees! (4)



What more do we seek?  What else do we need?

God’s promise, “Each need I will supply.”

Happiness today!  “Joy unspeakable,” always

Everlastingly.  “The sweet bye and bye!”



(1) Psalm 147:4

(2) Psalm 147:5

(3)Psalm 147:3

(4) We are God’s sparrows, His eye is on us!

(With a lot of help from God!)


So much is said about positive thinking,

The power of intention, too.

There is no power but God above

Not just intends but can do!



Now man may intend to build a storm

With thunder, lightning, and rain!

Well, think again, will not happen at all

You are just messing up your brain!



A certain King with a funny name

He thought he would command the tides.

Stood on the shore but his feet got wet.

What a pitiful ride!



Man gets a little power sometimes

Then puts his thoughts in rhymed verse,

But no matter how hard you try, you cannot.

No, you cannot run the universe!



Put a man in space! Well, how wonderful!

But who put that space out there?

Or that sun so much larger than ours,

You have a brain, compare.



Just maybe you can fill in the blanks

Like, that silly King and that sun.

Give up? Antares and King Kanute,

How can you be so dumb?



(Or is it King Canute? Dummy)
