Ode to God


Ode To God The Creator


Abba I call thee my dearest father
Elohim! speak of thee my creator,
God! I say with the utmost honor
I love thee my father and lender

Thou gavest me the breath of life
To live and praise thy name
To see the plight of those in might
And help the ones that wont obey

Thou gavest me all senses in perfection,
Including a brain that functions
I must then only be witness the truth,
And love and honor thy name


Oh! but tis in vein
thy word man puts in shame
For he doth Know the mighty wrath
Thou judges upon his reckoning

Mighty father forgive man’s weakness
Awaken their senses,
DIMINISH THEIR GREED
For he doth not know thy wrath

Watch him1 lord as he embraces his riches
Malice and jealousy doth cloud his wishes
Cheating and stealing with a deceives and itches
Yet he smile the smile of a hypocrite

He doth not know how foolish he seems
In thine eyes as he conceives,
Evil’s child he fondly adopts
Breeding it to torment a poor man’s heart

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Walter Scott

The moon's on the lake, and the mist's on the brae,
And the Clan has a name that is nameless by day;
Then gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
Gather, gather, gather Grigalach!
