Far above the minds and imaginations
Far above the hearts of man, in wisdom
Your Greatness reigns

By your name we are saved, your mercy exceeding
Words cannot contain how
Your Greatness is above all

By your word was all created that we see
Lord, our Refiner and purifier, ever
Your Greatness that is

Seated on the throne of righteousness, judging right
In Brilliance, mind cannot comprehend how in radiance
Your Greatness reigns

The stripes you bore, the nails that pierced through
Your blood shed, speaks in sacrifice
Your Greatness is above all

The kingdom you establish, not by power, nor by might
By your Spirit, oppression broken, sickness healed speaks of
Your Greatness that is

Your feet a place of mercy and forgiveness,
Sins held now forgiven, breaking the power of condemnation
Your Greatness reigns

Your presence full of grace, your eyes steadfast
Toward us in patience, that we may yield to you
Your Greatness is above all

Passionate for the lost, with a forgiving heart,
You work, bringing good into our lives
Your Greatness that is

Risen and Exalted Lord of all,
Now coming on the clouds in power and glory
Your Greatness reigns

Free verse - or do they call it prose...either way, since it is not exactly my cup of tea I'm not qualified to give a critique; but there are some very beautiful thoughts within this piece. Keep up the good work. God Bless.

I like the pattern established by the last line of each stanza. The rest of this reads almost like stream-of-consciousness, with some lovely words and phrases.

I'm not a great fan of poetry but I really enjoyed this. There was something beautiful and moving about it that really touches the reader's heart. Keep writing!
