Since “In the beginning…” and “Let there be…”

Man has been grasping for, and trying to wrap his mind around eternity.
Since His life filled our lungs we’ve been searching our minds
Reaching for words, to try and define
The beauty we see, the love that we need.

Words are so insufficient for a God beyond our comprehension
Praise and glory to a God that condescended.
He was revealed to us as the Word, in shadows and pictures
Still we were blinded by sin and misguided wishes.
But the beauty of the story is that He knew our condition.

Word became flesh and dwelt among men.
He lived to die and he lived to live.
He lived in righteousness, he died for sin.
To the right hand of the Father, it was for him to ascend.
So that we might join him, a beautiful bride he’s been given.
Who has the words for a God with such wisdom?

a beautifully crafted piece which brings to my mind the words of my favorite song, 'there's no other word for grace but amazing'
Reviewed by Connie Faust 7/27/2014
There is much beauty and richness in this poem. The more I read it, the more I appreciate its depth as you attempt to find the words to explain Him.
