Our Omnipotent God

Lord, you turned the wheels of the galaxies,
You know what makes the planets spin.
You set the universe in motion,
And yet, you care for mortal man.

By your hands, you set the atoms dancing,
And keep the great currents circling in the sea.
You call all the stars by their names, O Lord,
And yet you care for me.

Lord, you have measured the waters,
In the hollow of your hand.
You make the clouds your chariot,
And yet, you care for mortal man.

You sit upon the circle of the Earth,
And stretch the heavens as a curtain we can see.
You walk on the wings of the wind, O Lord,
And yet, you care for me.

He Is God

He said, “Let there be light,”
And then it was done.
He turned on the sun,
And hung the moon and stars out to shine.

He gathered the waters together
To form the ever-changing sea.
He created the universe,
And He made you and me.

He is God…
None other is above Him.
I worship and adore Him,
For He is God.

He made all the flowers,
And He made every tree…
He created the birds and the animals,
And all the fish in the sea.

He formed man from the dust,
And the woman from His side.
On the seventh day he rested…
Earth was ready for man to abide.

He is God…
None other is above Him.
I worship and adore Him,
For He is God!

Peace Be Still

“Peace, be still!” he said to the furious wind and waves.
Then the storm became a whisper, and the sea obeyed.                              
"What manner of man is this?" the disciples said in awe.
His name was Jesus- Master, Savior, and Son of God.

The Old Man And the Sea

The Old Man And the Sea
© Ben Burton 12-19-2014

"I'm troubled by the humbling plight of man's mortality"
The old man said aloud while kicking sand
"Why can't we be as timeless as the soulless, salty sea
Or even as the muddy Rio Grande

"Why must we come and go before we've barely wet a hook
And be adjudged for walking cross the pier
And yet the sea is fortified by rivulet and brook
And waves its cap for many billion years"

The old man wandered to the surf and shook an angry fist
Toward the place where sea and heaven met
"Why must I be accountable for what I can't resist
And be exposed for secrets I have kept?"

The sea like a leviathan with tempest in its wake
Did bellow out producing lightening bolts
"Oh, yes, you come and go and leave a trail of endless waste
And yet, you said yourself, I have no soul

"So give me ninety billion years and triple that times two
Is not a tick of time, you mindless lad
The day will come when I shall dry and earth will perish, too
But still, the Great Unknown will hold your hand"
