Think Again

When a crime is committed –

 

            ask “Who benefited?”

 

9/11 was a horrible crime –

 

            who benefited?     Really?

God lives and moves far, far above men,

Has always done so, near and far,

Before there was a past “when,”

Before He lit the first star.

 

God is so majestic, lovely, alone,

Alone in that no equal is found,

His is the eternal throne,

Situate without stone or ground.

 

He is holy and so is His name,

Purity propounded is our God,

And He’s always, forever the same,

Independent of wind, wave or clod.

 

That this great Being would care,

About all mankind, let alone one,

And would of His holiness share,

Makes one joyous that it is done.

 

God gave His Son to live and die,

That sins and their root-sin could go,

Go forever from the bold and the shy,

And love in its place might forever grow.
