HIM ABOVE

I wish he would let me
Look upon his face
As I wish to bask in
The glory of his grace

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

Allah
Yahweh
Christ
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
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
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
