With words He took nothing and created everything;
six days, and all that was done was good.
The day, the night, earth and seas did His power bring,
six days, He worked and all was made as it should.
Vegetation and plants He made, which all yielded seeds
six days, which can be measured by the stars He also made.
Then He created the fish and birds and animals of all breeds;
six days, He spoke, and His work shall never fade.
Then He made man in His own likeness,
and gave Him dominion over all other creations.
six days He worked, and all was flawless,
six days He created with nothing but His orations.
He gave man and woman blessings of faithfulness.
Six days he worked, and He needed nothing more than declarations.
The Lessons From The Master
He promised the poor his kingship;
He said those who mourn will always be comforted.
He offered the earth to the meek of his fellowship;
Let our hearts and his lessons never be parted.
Those who hunger for righteousness shall be filled.
Those who offer mercy will receive it.
Praise our Lord Christ, through whom the prophecies will fulfilled,
To you, dear Jesus, and your teachings do we, your servants, commit.
He took the things said to those of old,
and clarified them so we may know
the truth and context of what was told.
With Him we learn and hope and grow.
Let us follow his teachings and commands.
Let us follow him, every woman, child, and man.
To Him who saved the Israelites from the Pharaoh of Egypt,
to Him goes the glory always.
He is perfect and mighty; to Him goes the praise;
For He raised His son from Death, now empty is the crypt.
To Him who delivered Jerusalem in fulfillment of an oath,
To Him goes the glory forever.
His love and mercy always endure, come whatever.
For he is the God of jews and gentiles both.
To him who gave us the profits, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Daniel and Moses,
God of Jacob, Isaac, and Abraham,
He who judges and has mercy, He who curses and blesses,
He who granted Salvation, His son was the lamb,
the glory goes to Him who sees humanity through its distresses.
To Him goes the glory, He who calls himself I AM.
What a glorious thing I’ve been given
from the God-man incarnate from above.
It matters not how much I’ve striven,
Only His grace, which was given from love.
Even though I am undeserving,
He paid the price for my transgressions.
His care for me is ever unswerving;
All I can give back are my confessions.
He is my Savior for what he’s done;
His substitution is my redemption.
His blood and sacrifice my soul have won;
His death the key to my adoption.
I accept you, my Savior, in my heart,
With that and repentance my new life and sanctification start.
Let us clear away our hypocrisy that we may fight free;
let righteousness cover our hearts, Lord, so temptation can’t get in.
Let your good news grant our feet certainty, so we won’t slip by a single degree;
Let us trust in you, and let that trust cover our bodies and keep us from the darts of sin.
Let us always remember we are saved, let doubt never enter our minds;
Help us to train, oh Lord, to study your word like a blade master trains with his sword.
Help make your word a part of us, for we know that he who seeks finds;
Let us recall the right verses when we face temptation; then victory over sin will be our reward.
Let us wear your armor, Lord, and never remove it;
Let us be guarded by you always and never let down our guard.
We pray to be alert, Our Father, lest to our own natures we submit.
We pray to be alert, Our Father, lest our walk with you be jarred.
Let us stand with you always and trust in your grace.
Let us wear your armor, Lord, and let us walk in the faith.
We are able, Lord, we are able;
They spoke to him to gain his favor.
They wanted the left and right seats of his table,
but they did not understand our Savior.
They did not understand the true cost
of service and submission.
He was about to die for the Lost,
and they would suffer on his commission.
They did indeed find the glory they sought,
but not before paying the price.
The value of service is what the master taught,
and they learned so well through his sacrifice.
Now we are asked if we are willing;
let us be so for all the days we are living.
Let us humble ourselves to your mighty hand;
let us strive first to be righteous.
To seek to do or accomplish for ourselves is erroneous,
for you exalt, in due time, those who do as you demand.
Let us trust in you with all our hearts
and think first of how to glorify you.
For without your will, there is not point in what we do
We seek your kingdom and scripture to be our ramparts,
Our own works count for nothing beside your great plan.
The true blessing is to submit and trust in your grace.
Let us do so, oh Lord, and bring you to smile.
For we know disobedience is where our sin began,
and it was obedience of your son on earth that this original sin is erased
because our own understanding is not worthwhile.
