Christian Poetry – All Things Obey God

Tuesday, January 13, 2009

“He saith to the snow, Be thou on the earth. Job 37:6”
God’s works are very great, but still
His hands do not appear:
Though heaven and earth obey His will,
His voice we cannot hear.
And yet we know that it is He
Who moves and governs all,
Who stills the raging of the sea,
And makes the showers fall.
Alike in mercy He bestows
The sunshine and the rain;
That which is best for us He knows,
And we must not complain.
Whether He makes His winds to blow,
And gives His tempests birth,
Or sends His frost, or bids the snow,
“Be thou upon the earth.”

Poem Of The Week – How Blest Are They, Who, Fearing God

Wednesday, October 22, 2008

How blest are they, who, fearing God,
From sin restrain their feet,
Who will not with the wicked stand,
And shun the scorner’s seat.
How blest are they who make God’s law
Their treasure and delight
And meditate upon that word
With gladness day and night.
Their lives are nourished like a tree
Set by the river’s side;
Its leaf is green; its fruit is sure;
So all their works abide.
The wicked, like the driven chaff,
Are blown across the land;
They shall not gather with the just,
Nor in the judgement stand.
The Lord will guard the righteous well;
Their way to God is known,
The way of sinners, far from God,
Shall surely be o’erthrown.

Poem Of The Week – Fairest Lord Jesus

Wednesday, October 15, 2008

Fairest Lord Jesus

Fairest Lord Jesus, Ruler of all nature,
O Thou of God and man the Son,
Thee will I cherish, Thee will I honor,
Thou, my soul’s glory, joy and crown.
Fair are the meadows, fairer still the woodlands,
Robed in the blooming garb of spring;
Jesus is fairer, Jesus is purer,
Who makes the woeful heart to sing.
Fair is the sunshine,
Fairer still the moonlight,
And all the twinkling starry host;
Jesus shines brighter, Jesus shines purer
Than all the angels heaven can boast.
All fairest beauty, heavenly and earthly,
Wondrously, Jesus, is found in Thee;
None can be nearer, fairer or dearer,
Than Thou, my Savior, art to me.
Beautiful Savior! Lord of all the nations!
Son of God and Son of Man!
Glory and honor, praise, adoration,
Now and forever more be Thine.
