the splendour of the earth
For the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD
as the waters cover the sea. Habakkuk 2:14 (NIV)
by the sweat of its brow,
the river bleeds upon the thirsty land
in its sojourn to find the ocean floor.
its perpetual flow
is more than i will ever understand,
just like the love of Him Whom i adore.
life beneath ocean depths
flourishes in the mystery of Your care,
each with its own uniqueness and its worth.
Your children You have kept:
creatures of all kinds living everywhere,
we occupy the splendour of the earth.
generations of souls,
meandering impulses of free will,
we wander toward an unknown existence.
we search for hearts made whole,
ruminate Truth—Your Holy Word instilled,
Your guidance and love always sufficient.
