How the Universe Began by Raymond A. Foss

Our story, our belief of creation
how the universe began
in the words of our creator
speaking to life
all that was, that is
all of life

The deep, the waters
the void, chaos
Light cutting through
the words of the creator
making the light
shining through

All of the world, the stars, the skies
all part of an ordered plan
set into motion
by the voice of God
his breath, his mind
his loving word

Laws and beauty,
wind and rain,
the earth, the stars above
the plants and animals too
God made all
come into view
man from the lump of clay
