TITLE: How Faint a Whisper

how faint a whisper we hear of you
for who can comprehend
a king with no beginning
a kingdom without end?

how small a vision we have of you
who formed our very lives
the artist of the universe
the painter of the skies

how powerless the words we speak
to give the glory due
the maker of the galaxies
the author of all truth

how impotent the love we give
our hearts cannot contain
a pure, untainted passion
that’s worthy of your name

how distant from your holiness
how foreign to your throne
your ways so high above our ways
your thoughts unlike our own

how desperately we need your grace
how perfect your supply
your mercies new each morning
and reaching to the skies

how weak our strength, how frail our faith
how faltering our steps
apart from the infinity
of your life-giving breath

how endlessly we’ll strive to know
yet never fully see
the answer to life’s question
the god of mysteries


(inspired by Job 26:14)

This poem flowed so effortlessly, and almost had a melodious "sound." Loved it. Beautifully done. Thank you. God Bless~

Just absolutely lovely. Yes, there is that distance, thank God for sending Jesus to close the gap.
Jase Rosenburg05/31/12
Loved it!

This is lovely and has some great underlying messages.
Helen Curtis06/02/12
So simple and yet so profound at the same time. Really easy to read and so very easy to understand, (some poetry is so cryptic I just don't get it!).

My only question is regarding the word 'god' in the last line; was that intentionally lower case, or should it have been "God"?

I truly love this beautiful poem. Well done.
Helen Curtis06/02/12
Hi, me again! I've just realised, the entire poem is written in lower case, so ignore my last comment! Well, just the part about the capital G!

Blessings, Helen

Good poetry. I also prefer to see God spelled with a capitol G. Otherwise great job. Keep up the good work.
