“… and God said … and it was so ...”


yet man says else, and there is doubt

that now is cast upon the word of God

so vast does our wisdom seem to us

given all that we have learned since

God gave us once all-sufficient truth

much we have studied, so much learned

greatly grown beyond our fathers ken

we are wise yet are unable to believe

we know too little, as becomes a child

far more than a child are we uncertain

though grown and should know more

than what we ourselves can determine

and must sometime come to rest on God


Who even now remains sufficient truth

and more, perfect cause and goal of life



In response to those who excuse their lies and say

“Faithful Christians interpret Scripture differently.”
