Silent

Edgar A Guest

I did not argue with the man,
It seemed a waste of words.
He gave to chance the wondrous plan
That gave sweet song to birds.

He gave to force the wisdom wise
That shaped the honeybee,
And made the useful butterflies
So beautiful to see.

And as we walked 'neath splendid trees
Which cast a friendly shade,
He said: "Such miracles as these
By accident were made."

Too well I know what accident
And chance and force disclose
To think blind fury could invent
The beauty of a rose.

I let him talk and answered not.
I merely thought it odd
That he could view a garden plot
And not believe in God.


The Sower Becomes The Seed
Greta Zwaan, © 2005

The sower becomes the seed, the Word in flesh, indeed!
There is no other way but that the seed should die,
And that the Holy God of life would bring salvation nigh.

Itís not for man to question the working of Godís mighty power,
When He reveals His thoughts to man itíll be within His chosen hour
. Yet much has been foretold to man, thereís knowledge and great guidance;
The Word of God holds forth the truth and teaches man abidance.

But man, in his own willful way regards not facts or fiction,
He chooses to be self-controlled, he thinks not of conviction.
And yet, amidst manís selfish ways, Godís love is overwhelming;
He gently draws the soul of man through faith, yet not compelling.

Be not dissuaded by the world, its fruit is temporary,
But reach out to the promises; be quick and do not tarry.
For reckoning will soon ensue, the clouds will burst in glory,
God will reveal the deeds of life, Heís written down each story.

Thereíll be no chance to grieve for sin, no chance to make amendments;
Today salvation comes your way, requesting your attendance.
The call comes once or maybe twice, but GOD wonít always tarry,
The plea cannot be stronger made Ė let Christ your burdens carry.
