God is above us 
We are always told 
He looks down on us humble folks
The world he created he leaves on its own
It’s about time he descends from his throne

Him above confuses me 
The multiplicity of names 
For the one god
Addles my sometimes unbelieving brain

Three in one and one in three
Do I need a theology degree to understand
Him that didst make me?

I live and die they claim
According to his plan 
It seems my life must be all
About a man I have never seen

What’s in this for me?
Am I subjected to both an earthly 
And heavenly tyranny?

Heaven is above 
Sadly its entrance is via a grave 
The here and now must end 
Before I can benefit from his grace 
And live to eternity 

Is this truth or religious mythology?

No one knows what features
The all seeing has 
My mind cannot comprehend 
Why he hides himself so well
I am after all one of his flock 
And serve him well

I see in nature his love for mankind
His bounty of resources 
Shows a love unrestrained 
Man is blest having a father such as he 

Tangled though my mind may be 
When I contemplate his divinity
And usefulness to me 
I must acknowledge my great thanks
To him who helped create me
