Though I wrote this poem during my college days, it still represents my view.
Oh Lord in every eye I see
the search for some divinity;
in every passing hour I spend,
I see the plight of faithless men.
The learned who so much resist,
The rush to prove You don't exist,
is proof against their own vain guess;
their minds say no; their hearts say yes.
Oh Lord reveal to each of us
the splendor of true faithfulness,
which is not knowing how or why,
but simply knowing when to cry
for strangers left without a home,
for widows when their love is gone,
for children gripped in hunger's jaws,
for those who build religious walls.
Oh Lord reward the humble man
and all of those who understand
to be your slave is to be free,
to close our eyes so we can see.
Reason will soon dissolve away,
and so will vain philosophy;
but you, Oh Lord, shall never die;
Your truth lives through eternity.

|God is so good, and it's so good that we all are not God!
(Think of all the dethroning coups that would be going on around us trying to "out-god" one another. Imagine, the first amendment with diety clause, oh, the clamour that would create! LOL

|This is a truly outstanding write of truth. For God has put it in man to worship Him, and even those that deny his existence will go through life searching for something to fill that empty place in their heart. Excellent write Sir....

|Amen! Bravo! Eddie I second every word of this
exciting affirmation of God's omnipotence and
the utter futility of man to try to delete Him!
He has, and always will prevail over ignorant humanity!
He will also welcome those who have tried to defeat
Him, if they come to their senses!His love is that great!
