Harmony in Creation

This poem is inspired with Creation’s visions from Psalm 104 (the poem’s first 12 verses), and with a response from the hymn “My Life Flows On in Endless Song” (the poem’s final six verses).

Clothed with Holy majesty and honor

Heavens stretching out to infinity

Our Lord’s masterpiece endures forever

Clouds witness this sacred affinity

 

Earth’s foundation, never to be shaken

Lofty mountaintops look upon it all

Safe refuge waiting in fertile valleys

Creation’s spirit fulfilling each call

 

From flowing springs, animals quenching thirst

Every season following moon’s phases

Birds singing praise from highest tree branches

Rising and setting sun painting praises

 

God’s creation flowing as endless songs

Nothing shall ever shake its inner calm

Echoing across earth’s fruitful valleys

Scaling each mountaintop as joyful Psalms

 

Creation’s fountain forever springing

Beauty of the Lord’s harmony singing

From Colossians 1:16:  “For in Him all things in heaven and on earth were created, things visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or powers—all things have been created through Him and for Him.”

Here is the melody and lyrics to “My Life Flows On in Endless Song”:

    • Thanks Renee. This poem was inspired from Scripture and a hymn. Sometimes when i am reading a devotional with its Scripture, I feel the urge to keep going with my writing as an extension of what I have been studying.

    • Hussein, I appreciate your kind words. I hope you are doing well. I am staying safe and healthy, but sometimes life (with the virus) feels like I am floating on a ship without a port to dock at.

  1. Your poems are beautiful. The images you paint with words bring peace to my soul. Each morning I experience “Birds singing praise from highest tree branches” right outside my bedroom window. Life is beautiful. Thanks for reflecting that gift.

  2. Wonderful. You have captured our present predicament, how easy it is to forget the glory of creation and how we are in danger of turning a paradise into a nightmare. But when we truly look around it is so obvious that this world we’re living in has been created for us – an accident? I think not. Very well done.
