Made By God's Own Hands

In the beginning God created
the heaven and the earth. And
God said, Let us make man in
our image, after our likeness.
Genesis 1:1, & Genesis 1:26

He spoke the world into existance,
The plants, the trees, the land;
Each flower, fruit, and vegetable,
Was formed by His own plan.

He told the mighty ocean waves,
"This far you may roll, no more."
He placed the countless grains of sand
To form the ocean's shore.

He hung the sun, the moon, the stars,
Each in their own special place;
He created the beautiful skies above,
And heaven's glorious space.

He told the sun when it may rise,
When daylight shall appear,
And when it has to leave the sky,
As night-time draweth near.

He ordered every kind of animal,
Each created by His plan,
And then for His grand finale,
Our God created man.

He took a bit of earthly dust,
Forming it so carefully,
Then He breathed in it the breathe of Life,
Thus the first man came to be.

And God created woman,
From man's very own rib bone,
So that man would have a helpmate,
And would never be alone.

Yes, we are God's crowning glory,
Created by Him, and for Him;
His children, His love, His masterpiece,
May we ever praise and adore Him!
