The ordered world of nature’s ways
Speaks loud of God’s intelligence;
Through dark of nights and light of days,
In sun and moon and cosmos says—
‘Creation teems with evidence’.

The seasons come with no fanfare,
They keep their order every year,
You’d never know that they were there
Save for their workings everywhere—
Their signs to us are crystal clear.

The times and seasons God has planned
Two major declarations state—
All nature works at God’s command
And if it does then so should man—
These things give cause to contemplate.

The Lord Himself would illustrate
With common things the truths He brought,
Through times and seasons intimate
The hour indeed is very late—
From ‘signs of times’ let us be taught.

Though day and hour cannot be known
We’re told to fix our gaze above,
To watch for signs that will be shown
That indicate to all His own
The soon return of our First Love.

He comes as thief in darkest night,
On all who’re not awaiting Him;
Without announcement, out of sight,
Comes the believers great Delight—
Instantly He will rapture them.

Discern the season we are in—
Time races on; the day is near—
Now bad is good and good is sin!
Look up! Be watching out for Him!
The autumn of the age is here.

Beautiful poetry, and so apropos! I homeschool my son, and coincidentally, our Bible lesson this morning was about the evidence of Creation. Congratulations--well done!
