Behold Our Creator

From John 1.1:  “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.  

Before earth ever existed, God was here

There is only one God, He has no peers


Out of nothing— absolute darkness, vacant, and cold

God reaches out with His Word, astounding and bold


Remaining distinct from His eternal creation

God’s handiwork brings proud, lasting elation


God constructs with a purpose, the Heavens declare

His glory reveals absolute knowledge, nothing spared


Our sovereign, Holy God creates it all

Later, man will take a backwards fall


Creation arrives through God’s Holy prose

“Let there be”—He continues to propose


The Holy Trinity, God declares as Three in One

Faithful spirit sits beside God’s redeeming Son


Designing visible and invisible, God reigns here

The heavens and earth watch as God stays near


Working for six days, all appears good, very good

God feels proud of what He’s done, and He should


Following His purpose, His knowledge leads the way

The Glory of God creates with a Holy plan each day


God stands as author, at the center of reality

Without God, chaotic darkness makes a place

God’s people enjoy a bursting, creative taste

Worshipping God’s creation for all of eternity

From pastor John Piper:  “God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in Him.”
