Beyond all things was God the Word
From the void of eternity
Time and space in creation heard
The Voice speaking infinitely.
Spirit of God on the waters
Divine Word of life in the night
“Creatio ex nihilo”
Father said “Let there be light!”
You divided light from darkness
You split the first atom to say
How we should separate evil
And distinguish the night from day.
Lord, you brought chaos to order
Your great Wisdom cushioned the deep
Recording a holy cosmos
Awakening formless sleep.
You placed the orbits and quasars
Winding the clock into time
The coherence behind the laser
The reason within the rhyme.
You bring pure joy out of sadness
You still bring life out of breath
Sanity in human madness
Gladdening sorrowing death.
The real hub in revolution
The one who planted the Tree
Adam and Eve-lution
The One who caused things to be.
The Great Mover pushed the button
Silence before seraphim sang
Infinite God formed the finite
The Big One made the Big Bang.
By Father Jonathan Hemmings
