The crown of creation is mankind

Yet they say it has no designer;

No God who has created same

And no Creator or no refiner.

But shouldn’t this be of concern?

Since everything we create needs a brain,

With a heart and a logical sequence

So no fault or seam remains.

Surely our arrogance tells us otherwise

That God does not exist,

Have we forgotten the fundamentals?

As surely something we have missed.

The intricate detail of our bodies

Is a testament that God is true…

A perfect designer with a brilliant concept

To believe is the least we can do.

Our lymphatic and nervous system

All have a function to fulfil;

Our eyes are a majestic miracle

Where much delicate care is instilled.

Our heartbeat is alive and well

And our fingertips are furnished with nails;

Our eye lashes protect our eyes indeed

With every blink that they entail.

Look at the beauty in animals

Their eyes talk to us every day,

With a warmth and an unconditional love

With a beauty that remains.

Examine the wonder of flowers

And their distinct aroma as well,

Their perfect stem and structure too

God’s masterpiece they spell.

The clay doesn’t dictate to the Potter

Or neither clenches the fist,

Since there’s beauty in everything He makes

On His comprehensive list.

The crown of creation

Is the majestic design of us all;

With a gift from the Father, our Jesus

Who redeems us from the fall.

The crown of creation

Reflects God’s richness indeed,

To relate to us on a personal level

And as a Father to take the lead.

To inspire and to encourage us

And to see us through every trial,

To direct our steps in righteousness

To bring conviction if we’re defiled.

The majesty of God’s Son

Deserves the greatest crown of all,

Since the explicit nature of Jesus

Will intercede when the Father calls.
