Creation Song

Featured image

Out of the dark and void of space

Light sprang to greet His hand

He drew from night and nothinginess

A bright and holy brand

And God saw that it was good

So night came and morning followed

The first day

He ripped the skies to separate

In crimson boundaries

And color was invented then

For Heaven’s Mysteries

And God saw that it was good

So night came and morning followed

The second day

The wind of His breath blew the waters

He gathered them under the sky

And forming the dry land under

Made earth and sea to lie

And His thoughts became as green things

To grow within the soil

Each with its own flow’r and seed

From poorest to most regal

And God saw that it was good

So night came and morning followed

The third day

From the light of His eye God drew the sun

To govern day in flaming light

He hung the moon from the galaxy

And placed the stars to fill the night

And God saw that it was good

So night came and morning followed

The fourth day

He bade the water bring forth creatures

Made birds to fly the heaven’s face

And each one lived and multiplied

According to His perfect grace

And God saw that it was good

So night came and morning followed

The fifth day

Then God gave life to all other mortal

Beasts dwelling on dry land

He made the cattle, and creeping things

And blessed them with His hand

“Let us make man in our own image,”

Last of all God said

And stretching out to dust He gave it

An eternal soul inspired

And God saw that it was good

So night came and morning followed

The sixth day

When He had finished His creation

God blessed what He had done

And rested from His labors then –

Thus being was begun

For God saw that it was good

So night came and morning followed

The seventh day
