Worship from the Floor


In God's Holy Presence
we could not stand
Before Him
we all would fall
Overcome, trembling
and shaken
By His Holiness
overawed

In His Presence
our bodies so puny
Like ants
thrown into the sun
Liquified, melting
like gold in the fire
Impurities cleansed
by His Son

We stand together
when worshipping
We stand as if in awe
But if God walked in
to Sunday Church
We'd be worshipping
from the floor.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

A poem about how the presence of God in a worship service changes & effects us... worship can be so self-conscious or put-on... yet if God actually walked into the room we would all fall flat on our faces... who can stand in God's presence? No one.

Poem of the Day

poet William Butler Yeats

WINE comes in at the mouth
And love comes in at the eye;
That's all we shall know for truth
Before we grow old and die.
I lift the glass to my mouth,
