God came to Earth

Lo, Jesus came heralded by a star

and so, each year candles flicker

and sweet carols rise.

What an infinitely small view man takes

of this cosmic happening

and Spiritual intrusion!

God came to earth.

The Creator became a creature.

The Prince of Peace became a pauper.

The Word of God a speechless child.

King he was in Heaven

Yet on earth a lowly vassal.

The Source of all knowledge

thought the world was flat!

The communicator of truth

spoke Hebrew and Aramaic.

God came to earth

to lie howling in his mother’s arms

and muzzling at her breast.

And yet,

We sing sentimental carols

of angel choirs and spotless shepherd boys

And wonder where our God has gone!

God is

A while ago I heard a song of the same title sung by Govan Salvation Army band, it was an old recording but non the less I loved the song and still do. Below is the words to the song.

Genesis 1:1-31

In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was without form and void, and darkness was over the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters. And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. And God saw that the light was good. And God separated the light from the darkness. God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And there was evening and there was morning, the first day. …See the source image

Have you ever wondered how the wold began

Have you wondered how the heavens came to be

Of the miracle of life and all creation?

Just look around and you will surely see

God is in the autumn leaves, God is in the chilling breeze,

God is in the rainbow rare, God is everywhere

God is in the falling snow, God is in the ember’s glow

God is in my earnest prayer.

Have you heard the silence of a sunset?

And then pondered on the uselessness of noise?

Have you thought of the Creator, where to find him?

It’s so simple, just consider all life’s joys

God is in the wind that blows, God is in each flower that grows,

God is in the tallest tree, God is in the sea,

God is in the darkest night, God created heaven’s light,

God is in the heart of me.
