if I am not a man of God

I am not a man


I am of His hand

residing in His world

surrounded by His stars

and numberless unknown things

provided yet unseen

and even if I reject His name

I dare not reject His world


everyday His hand sustains me

every breath His love compels

each meal I eat, each step I make

His powr alone allows

I cannot live as though He does not

for the meshing would be gone

His grace pervades all that is

I cannot avoid nearing Him

in how He makes things be

and thus, no matter how I live

if I live as though He does not

I live at odds with life


If I am not a Man of God
