Resplendence - A Poem

By David Roth
© 24 September, 2003
Turn Three of the Creation Cycle

Can you feel it?
The awesome magnitude of creation
Evident in all that surrounds us
From the unseen to the obvious
From the unknown to the known
The guiding hand of Immortal God
Revealed to hearts that seek

It begins quietly
With a still soft voice whispering to the soul

Hidden in the weaving together
Of the atoms and molecules
That make up
The fabric
Of our existence

From the whisper of a gentle wind
To the fury of a howling gale
From the molten core of the planet
Piercing the night
As an angry volcano spews forth its power
To the complex crystal grain of sand
Gracing the water’s edge

In the beating heart of all of life
To the very air we breath
From a mind that knew us in our mother’s womb
That counts the very hairs on our heads
The infinitesimal wonder of eternal Deity
Who was and is and ever will be

He speaks in all of creation
His presence the world reveals
For He is there
And the sound of his presence is deafening

The Universe around is the canvas of His artistry
Glorious in its simplicity
Magnificent in its beauty
Resplendent in its majesty

Have you not known?
Have you not heard?
Has it not been told you from the beginning?
Have you not understood from the foundations of the earth?

It is He Who sits upon the circle of the earth,
And the inhabitants thereof are as grasshoppers;
Who stretches out the heavens as a curtain,
And spreads them out as a tent to dwell in

I am Alpha and Omega
The Beginning and the End
Who Is
And Was
And Who is to come
The Almighty

For by Him were all things created,
That are in heaven,
And that are in earth,
Visible and invisible,
Whether they be thrones, or dominions,
Or principalities, or powers:
All things were created by Him, and for Him:
