The Greatest Story

I can write a poem or I can fill a page
With a fictional story that I hope will engage
Your interest or your liking, but I can surely never
Make a fiction tale or find a true tale that is better

Than the most amazing tale that man has ever heard
The astounding, great Good News, the true unchanging Word
That in the beginning there was Yah, His Son and Spirit too
They made all things we see around–the birds, the trees, and you

He made us and He loved us, although He knew we’d fall
He knew we would not listen and would not obey His call
So disobey we humans did, He banished us away
From His marvelous garden, and we went our sinful way

But Yehovah still did love us even after we’d gone astray
He sent His prophets and His Word to guide us in the way
He saved us from His captors and He fed us with His bread
But we would always scorn Him after we had been fed

So we continued sinning but Yah’s plan was far from done
Despite our wicked, adulterous deeds He sent His only Son
To save and free from hell and death all those who trust in Him
To bring from darkness to the light, and deliver us from sin

He’s the king; He made us all; He died upon that tree
For those dead, for those alive, and for those yet to be
He gave His life so we can be joined one with Yah again
To open up the gates of life so we can enter in

To go back to the garden we lost, to give Him praise and love
To obey His Words so He can bless us from above
How can I tell how much He’s helped me? He’s saved me; I’m His own
How can I list all of His blessings? He’s going to bring me home

How can I make a better story? What’s more amazing than this?
How could I live without my Savior? He’s my strength, my bliss
How can I tell what all He’s done or sing all of His praise?
His love’s beyond my mortal mind; I’ll praise Him all my days

I am a fifteen-year-old girl who loves to write, especially fiction. I write many stories and poems. I usually have a moral or lesson behind my writings, for I hope these stories and poems, which Yehovah (God) helped me to write, will glorify Him as I share them on this blog. Welcome to my blog and I hope you enjoy your stay!

  1. I know you’re not the Psalmist, David, but your poetry is almost as moving and inspirational to me. I can tell it comes from your heart, Faith! I sincerely admire the ability (talent) you have to compose such beautiful and thought provoking poetry!
    Keep it up! đŸ™‚

  2. Faith, what a powerful piece of poetry! I love how you layed out an overview of the Bible in your poem and pointed to God in each and every stanza. What a beautiful poem!
