God The Maker

God the maker of all living things is amazing. This poem describes some of these wonderful creations and works of art that God created. We take a lot of these things for granted and sometimes miss the beauty of His skillfulness. Some people who doubt God's existence need only look at the beauty of a sunset or the detail of a flower and be reminded that this was not created at random that there is a God who created it all! Allow this poem to remind you or someone you know of the things He created for our benefit.

Looking up at the sky, I sometimes see God in his "paintings". The beauty He has provided us is absolutely wonderful and I find myself searching through grey skies for a glimpse of this beauty when dreary weather drags on. The beautiful sky, mountains, waters, and nature are no coincidence, they are His works of art.

God The Maker
Poet: Katharine Tynan

God made the country,
Man made the town.

God clad the country
In a green gown.

Clad her in kirtle
Of the green silk.

God made the country
Of honey and milk.

Poor folk from Eden
Driven away,

God made the country
For a holiday.

God gave the country
A flower, a bird,

To comfort His children
For the flaming sword.

For easing and pleasing
He made a tree,

Many a sweet rivulet,
Dew and the bee.

God made the country,
Man made the town.

Is not God a maker
Of great renown?

Another poem about God and His creation written by Edgar A. Guest to give us thoughts about God:
Poet: Edgar A. Guest

When God first viewed the rose He'd made
He smiled, and thought it passing fair;
Upon the bloom His hands He laid,
And gently blessed each petal there.
He summoned in His artists then
And bade them paint, as ne'er before,
Each petal, so that earthly men
Might love the rose for evermore.

With Heavenly brushes they began
And one with red limned every leaf,
To signify the love of man;
The first rose, white, betokened grief;
"My rose shall deck the bride," one said
And so in pink he dipped his brush,
"And it shall smile beside the dead
To typify the faded blush."

And then they came unto His throne
And laid the roses at His feet,
The crimson bud, the bloom full blown.
Filling the air with fragrance sweet.
"Well done, well done!" the Master spake;
"Henceforth the rose shall bloom on earth:
One fairer blossom I will make,"
And then a little babe had birth.

On earth a loving mother lay
Within a rose-decked room and smiled,
But from the blossoms turned away
To gently kiss her little child.
And then she murmured soft and low,
"For beauty, here, a mother seeks.
None but the Master made, I know,
The roses in a baby's cheeks."
