Guest Post by Maurice Dyson
In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.
The wonder of creation,
Is God’s own revelation;
It happened in a single point of time.
Though scientists debate it,
The Scriptures clearly state it,
In language transcendental and sublime.
When all has been computed,
Objections are refuted;
They cannot stand when placed against the text.
The claims of evolution,
Are just a vain solution,
For what has been and what is coming next.
The Lord has given Maurice Dyson a wonderful ability to take a passage of Scripture – a story, a Biblical character, a principle of truth – and present it in poetic form.
His aim in writing these poems is to teach people about the Lord, and to draw us back into the Scriptures, so that each of us would search out the wonderful things of God.
This poem is from his book 100 Poems of Praise: Christian Poetry to Praise God.
We would like to thank Mr. Dyson for such a lovely poem.
