And It Was Good

God looked upon creation and He smiled
His glory was reflected, undefiled
He painted the flowers and splashed every dawn
Sculpted the elephant and speckled the fawn

Planets and stars He strategically placed
Into the farthest reaches of space
He handcrafted Everest and things microscopic
Of every good thing He inspired the topic

His fingerprints are well interspersed
Through the entirety of this universe
His undeniable power is revealed everywhere
A cause to worship the One whose image we bear

Zion's Future Glory

Sing, barren woman;   Give birth to jubilation   For through your offspring's seed   Will come the longed-for consolation...
