The Lord Has Spoken

Before the creation, there was darkness and deep
There was nothing around, not awake nor asleep
No land was in sight, no countries or borders
God's Spirit was hovering over the waters

Then God opened His mouth and said "Let there be light"
The sounds left His lips and creation took flight
A great light appeared and then God said "OK
I'll call the dark night and I'll call the light day

God saw it was good and He winked at His Son
"Too much water all in the one place 'aint much fun
We'll leave some below and we'll put some up high
The bit in-between, we'll call it the sky"

There was water below - there was plenty to see
Then God said "What next? Let's see, what will it be?
Let's bring up dry ground and we'll call it the land
The sea will surround it and it will be grand"

God spoke on day three - day two was so good
"We'll make a few trees, we can make them from wood
Some plants and some fruit and each one with a seed
Some sun and some water is all that they'll need"

God saw what He'd made and He thought it was fine
"Now let's fill up the sky and we'll teach it to shine
The sun by the day, so warm and so bright
The moon and a few million stars by the night"


On the fifth, God looked down from heaven on high
He checked out the water and looked at the sky
"Let's fill them with fish and some birds that can fly
They'll splash and they'll flap and they'll all multiply

Now the sky had its' birds and the sea had its' creatures
The land had its' plants and its' wonderful features
It was all very good - God was far from upset
But He said to his Son "Well we 'aint finished yet"

God spoke again and then more life appeared
From insects to cows and a goat with a beard
Big cats and dinosaurs covered the deck
and a strange looking one with a really long neck

God was so happy with all He had done
But the greatest of all of His works was to come
"We'll make them like us and they'll rule the whole land.
I'll love all my children with all that I Am"

At the end of six days, the Lord's work was complete
On the seventh He rested and put up His feet
"I'll call this day holy and it will be blessed
I'll call it the Sabbath, the day of my rest

Next time that you look at a tree or a bird
Remember the power God has in His Word
He speaks and it happens, no messing about
and when He comes back, it will be with a SHOUT!
