The Father has always existed.

Forever He has been God.

Walk back through the lanes of time,

Mid tracks of history’s nod.

Gaze upward through “robin-egg” skies,

Search beneath solid earth’s sod,


Let science show you’re her treasures,

Of strata, phylum, and gene.

Or travel the wide sky over,

In fiction’s fantastic machine.

God’s there in chubby molecule and,

In DNA’s ladder, so lean.


Old history’s filled with mementos,

Dates for death and for birth.

Biographers struggle to cover,

Lone sorrow and congregate mirth,

But no birthday is found for God,

Years cannot measure His worth.
