ETERNAL EVERLASTING

“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!)

I ANSWER TO MY KING

I do not bend knee to anyone.  Just God gets my acclaim.

He made me and He loves me and He knows me by my name!

.

Sure we are all created equal; you are no better off than I.

I am certain you outrank me but we are all going to die.

.

You may be king or president or duke or lord or squire,

But you know something?  Listen up!  We all get old, retire!

.

Because I do not bend knee does not mean that I do not care.

He cares for me and yet, He knows and names each star out there! (*)

.

Though I do not bow to anyone, except my Lord and King,

I respect you!  May I help you with this message I now bring?

.

There is but one God, Creator!  He made you, loves you so,

He gave His life to save you.  He died that you might know–

.

That “His grace is sufficient,” He knows you through and through. (**)

I am a pauper.  Have you wealth?  Well, you cannot take it with you!

.

.

(*)  Psalm 147:4

(**) II Corinthians 12:9 “My grace is sufficient for you…”

      (You got a better plan?  I would like to hear it.)
