In the beginning
There was nothing
A lifeless void that was
An empty canvas
Blank and formless
Longing for beauty, the touch
Of an artist
And with that first small spark
You chased away the dark
Began Your work of art
You're the Painter of the skies
The Author of all life
At Your Word the heavens came to be
When You breathed the stars were born
The universe was formed
All Your thoughts became reality
Your fingerprints are everywhere
I am silenced
As I listen
To the music of
The roaring seas
The gentle breeze
All of nature is playing Your symphony
And the pinnacle of Your work
Were the people You formed from the dirt
And despite our failures
You still see our worth
We are Your masterpiece
Painter of the Skies
