IN THE BEGINNING…

In the beginning there had to be

Someone in order to bring,

All that we know and see and hear

Along with everything.

Because nothing can come from nothing

It’s truly impossible if it did,

With such spectacular detail in its design

And much wonder in our midst.

In the beginning was God Himself

Who forever did exist;

The Alpha and the Omega

Where life in us He kissed.

He blessed us with His beauty

When He created Adam and Eve,

But they chose to believe that snake instead

And both were grossly deceived.

The beginning of our fallen nature

Commenced on that very same day,

When authority was stamped upon our flesh

Through Satan and his ways.

They truly did have everything;

All the beauty one could desire,

But they still were not satisfied

And listened to that liar.

All evil and all calamity

Has bred ever since that day,

Because when God is not obeyed

There’s a heavy price to pay.

And the wages of sin is death

Hence we all will eventually die,

But through God’s grace and mercy

Is the gift of eternal life.

Thank God that Jesus Christ

Was appointed to die on the cross,

To reconcile us to the Father

To redeem all that was lost.

Those that repent and trust in Him

Are resurrected and made new,

Where eternal life awaits

In God’s kingdom pure and true.
