TITLE: Somewhere Beyond the Blue

Somewhere beyond the blue, He dwells,
The God of all creation.
He oversees my own domain,
And that of every nation.

The vastness of His universe,
I cannot comprehend;
The earth is bound by sea and sky,
A blueness without end.

Before God even formed the world,
He made salvation’s plan:
To send His Son to earth to die
For sins of fallen man.

Omnipotent, Omniscient, He,
Majestic over all,
And yet He takes the time to see
The tiny sparrow’s fall.

He lives outside of time and space,
Unknown infinity,
As Father, Son, and Holy Ghost,
A Sacred Trinity.

His mercy is unmerited,
His love, long suffering,
His faithfulness, without compare,
His goodness, blessings bring.

The Bible He inspired to
Direct in all our ways.
He is the God above all gods
And worthy of our praise.

His kingdom is within the hearts
Of Christians everywhere.
He rules o’er all from heaven above,
Our Lord beside Him there.

And someday I’ll dwell there with Him,
Somewhere beyond the blue.
He’s promised me eternal life,
And all His words are true.

Great flow, rhythm, rhyme and message throughout. Enjoyed this A+ devotional poem.

Wonderfully descriptive of our Lord in all His ways and goodness! I love the light and airy feel of this poem--just right for "blue".
Yvonne Blake 10/21/09
I could almost hear a majestic tune flowing through this!
Mona Purvis10/21/09
As I read this I thought how it says enough in these few verses to "tell the gospel". The simple, easy flow reflected the simple, easy message. Yet, both are full of power.

How do you do it? Once again you've packed truth into a pleasant, perfectly metered and rhymed poem. Kudos!

You have a great poem. I like your use of your title in your poem. You used it, but you didn't overuse it.

Another winner for your book! I'm getting so I can spot your poetry a mile away for its excellent word carpentry. I can't tell you often enough how good your writing is!
