Original Purpose What seems almost Like an eternity ago Before that moon Cast its silver glow Powerful, in joy Words were spoken Out of dark nothingness A world was begotten An all-powerful Creator Because He loved The idea of us so much Reached down and With a single touch Started His own universe With care and a little time Embarked upon a thought-out plan Someones in His image made To share all of their nights & days In His Joy & Presence That original purpose, that plan Was for all of His creation Sky, earth, animals and man To share in His Glory That fantastic, stupendous Beauty That loves everyone the same Even enemies get to watch His magnificent displays Of love, mercy, justice, kindness & that miraculous forgiveness & us? Well, we were meant to be For all of His creation to see Image bearers of the same His power, light, glory & Holy, beautiful, name But we failed, Rebelled as the ancient tale Written in a Holy Book is told To someone else our souls were sold And evil entered our lives
Until we were given
A second chance
But it came at the highest cost
GOD HIMSELF DIED FOR US!
To return us to that Original purpose Shed his blood to return To us His Glory So please pick up the Book And read the most beautiful Of all earth’s written stories!
