As A Believing Human Being - Poem by Gert Strydom

As a believing human being
I want to daily trod
in the shadow of the omnipotent God
and find Him in every beautiful thing.

In a world where the darkness brings doubt
like a mere child I want to hope and trust
that our existence goes much further than just chance and dust
that a superior eternal love continually drives the darkness out,

that all of the planets and stars in the sky
are beacons of the eternal everlasting King,
that a superior being created everything,
even that which is unseen by the naked eye.
