Ex Nihilo

EX NIHILO
(Latin: Out of Nothing)

Amazing God! You make possible what’s not
From death, life
From barrenness, a womb that bears
Turning desolation into hope
You are God Who must create
Alpha, Omega
Beginning, End, and Everything
From nothing

Infinite!
Too marvellous for words…
Only with my trembling heart did I perceive
A shattering glimpse of Your almighty power
And I had to turn away,
Gasping!
Consumed!
Dying with my love for you

Who are You Lord?
I haven't e'en begun to know
Glacial universes
Aeons of vanities
Millenia of voids
Lie between the tiny atom that I am
And You

How can I comprehend You
Beloved God?
Adonai!
Eloheinu!
Yahweh!
How?
Page to page and age to age
Your Word reveals
But with what veiled and sin-filled eyes we see You
With what tainted hearts we comprehend Your mercy and Your majesty
With what shallow wonder do I understand
That I can call You Father now
Because Emmanuel was here!

Was that Your plan Beloved El Shaddai?
Did Your heart long to dwell with man
As my heart breaks to live with You?
