A Merciful Father

Updated on March 2, 2017


The grandest Creator, our very own progenitor, one and only God,

He is always to be our most forgiving, is this loving father of us all.

Every creature is of his own finest making, as from the earthen soil,

Both of those, the greatest in their stature, evenly, of those, so small.


Each one an embodiment, taken from his love, His thoughts so kind,

Is so seeded from that benevolence of his own most generous mind.

Written upon the commonest parchment, as its likeness, a blueprint,

Then so spoken, of its precious wording, in strong scriptures to bind.


His power is so great, as he rules over the thunders, all to crash,

Lightning bolts gripped firmly in his iron hands, then all do flash.

Mercy to be shown to those he has made, his children, as in kind,

Any Wayward behavior shown, not to go unpunished, his to mind.


Like all good and just shepherds, to be watching over his own fold,

He judges their best of behaviors, in his strong hands, lives to hold.

Punishment comes to the guilty ones, swiftly, to be harsh, is so bold,

Always his forgiveness to be shown, wrongdoers compassion, untold.




The ants, the honey bees, the beautiful butterflies, all do so show,

His love and caring, as each precious creation, then of His to grow.

Every single blade of grass, the leaves upon limbs of the tall trees,

Their important role all to unfold, prepared in his plan, he foresees.


As his stewards placed upon this green earthen sphere, do adhere,

Our daily lives are so guided, are judged, wrongful behavior to fear.

That of ourselves, overshadowed by others, consequences to share,

Our merciful maker in his celestial home, we pray, our souls to spare.


The good in spirit, those souls with kindest hearts and all so caring, will be spared by the Father, for in his home he has made them a room.
The good in spirit, those souls with kindest hearts and all so caring, will be spared by the Father, for in his home he has made them a room.

      Recognizing the Sovereignty of the Creator God, it is a great boost to our worth to consider ourselves the "creature is of his own finest making." It also boosts or sense of responsibility to represent Him. Great messages throughout the poem.
