In the void of nothing and the blackness of space
Before the earth as we know it or the human race
Before there was time or earth or air
God the creator was always there.
In the annuls of history, every recorded event
In the success of nations, and in their laments,
The deeds of man that history has shared
God the Father was always there.
In the status quo of this human existence
Even midst our continued resistance,
To God’s love, which He freely shares,
God the Savior is always there.
Though the days ahead appear they will be fearsome
Let the man of faith approach them with wisdom
Knowing we have not been given a spirit of fear
Because the message of the Living God is clear,
Assuring us that when the final pages of our days
Have all been recorded they will say
“The Almighty God has remained to us very near
For he is the one true God who is still here.”
We don’t praise a mist in the air
We praise a God who is always there.
We don’t worship a god who cannot hear
We worship the God who was and who is, always here.
