GENESIS 1: THE CREATION
In the Beginning……
The Earth was without form but this was the calm before the Storm
And the Spirit hovered over the waters.
The Creator then spoke, and the elements awoke
So teach this to your Sons and your Daughters.
Creation Day 1, the story has just begun,
God said “Let there be Light” and the light became real,
Divided from Darkness, it had the Lord’s seal.
He named the light Day and the darkness Night,
At the end of the first day all was going right.
Creation Day 2, Plenty more to do,
God said “Let there be Firmament” and the waters were parted,
Placed above and below he was just getting started.
The Firmament in the middle he then named Heaven,
It was the cake and God’s Word was the leaven.
Creation Day 3, Just wait and see,
God said “Let dry land appear” and waters were gathered,
The Continent took shape and the Oceans lathered.
God said “Let there be Grass and Herbs and Fruit yielding Trees”
And all of it was so without spot or disease.
Creation Day 4, But wait there is more,
God said “Let the Heavens be lighted for Day and for Night,
A greater and lesser is called for and right.
The greater is the Sun and it rules the day,
The Moon rules the night and so it will stay.
Let them be signs and for times and Seasons,
God knows what he’s doing and had valid reasons.
God set out the Stars in the blanket of sky,
And behold it was good, without word of a lie.
Creation day 5, The World’s coming alive,
God said “Let there be Fish a-swarm in the Sea,
And the sky full of Birds flying and free.
And the Great Sea Creatures let’s not forget those,
The skies and the Sea full of life’s how it goes”.
Creation Day 6, let’s diversify the mix,
God Said “Let there be living Creatures all over the land
All Beasts and Cattle by group and by band.
And also the Creeping things according to kind”,
And behold it was good, but back to the grind.
God said “Let us make Man to be in our image”,
A keeper of all from our Holy Lineage.
He then made a Woman to help him along,
“To go forth and multiply”…That didn’t take long.
God gave them all herbs to be for their food,
All was abundant for the Adamic brood.
They tended the garden and walked with their God,
And all was provided without turning of sod.
Creation Day 7, Resting in Heaven,
Then God had a spell from the work he had done,
And he blessed this day as a sanctified one.
On this day remember That God made all things,
So look around and enjoy the blessing it brings.
GENESIS 2:THE GARDEN & THE FALL
So God had made Man from the dust of the ground
Dirt into flesh pound for pound.
And from Man’s rib, Woman was fashioned,
Food was abundant with no need to be rationed.
Eden was their home, God’s own garden,
They knew of no sin, so need for pardon.
God provided their food and all else they required,
Two were one flesh and marriage was sired.
Adam named all the beasts birds and plenty of fish,
And walked with God daily, everyone’s wish.
He and Eve were both naked without any shame,
No stain or blemish and absent of blame.
But there was a tree from which God said “Don’t eat”,
Knowledge of good and evil will bring down the heat.
God said “Help yourself to everything else,
That one is definitely bad for your health”!
Now the serpent heard this and told Eve “What a crock”!
God’s put you in chains so I’ll spring the lock.
Take a big bite and you’ll be just like the Lord,
She was tricked by a liar and master of fraud.
Then Adam joined in and followed his Wife,
Took a big bite and got into strife.
They hid from the Lord when he came to the garden,
For guilt and for shame and hoping for pardon.
God said “What is this thing that you have done?
Why do you hide and why do you run”?
Who said you were naked? Why the Fig leaves?
Your disobedience has made my heart grieve.
So Eve told the Lord what the Serpent had said,
That she could eat freely and not end up dead.
And God cursed the Serpent to crawl on his belly
Be forever their enemy, lowly and smelly.
Then God said to Eve, “For what you have done,
Your child birth will be painful, your sorrow a ton.
Your desire is for Adam and he’ll rule over you,
Strife is now for your days through and through.
Then God said to Adam, “And as for you dude,
You’ll labour real hard for all of your food.
The ground will be cursed with thistles and thorns,
Your hands will be blistered, your feet will be torn.
So out they were cast, from the Garden of Eden,
Their grains to be grown, their bread to be kneadin.
And God set a Cherubim to guard Edens gate,
To keep man from making another mistake.
So Adam and eve set about their new life,
Full of ups and downs with trouble and strife.
They went forth and multiplied as originally instructed,
And so life went on and business conducted.
GENESIS 3:THE FLOOD
As mankind flourished, begat and begetting, sin also was rising and morals were slacking
Men’s thought were of evil continually, his wickedness growing perpetually.
The Nephalim came to check out the Women, and Giants were present though soon to be swimmin.
And the Lord shook his head as he saw all of this repented he made us, thought his actions remiss.
But Noah found Grace in the eyes of the Lord, just and upright these things he abhorred,
Though born a sinner from the house of Seth, God would save him from forthcoming death.
So God said to Noah “All flesh will soon end, all Creatures will die the Earth I shall rend,
Go make an Ark of these given dimensions, for flooding the Earth is my determined intention”.
“Two by Two the Creatures will come, so collect lots of fodder, every grain and crumb,
Food for them and for you must be stored in the Ark, for what’s soon to come is no walk in the park,
Bring into the Ark your house and your Sons, for you are the righteous my chosen ones,
From you shall come the new Generations, many tribes, peoples and Nations”.
For the next hundred years the building was done, hard work every day with no time for fun,
Though Ridiculed and laughed at they still persevered, the flood was coming, the time drawing near.
Noah warned all who came but no one would hear, too proud and sinful to show remorse or fear,
And then the day came, though life was as normal, destruction arrived, the promise made formal.
God shut up the Ark with all aboard, Noah, his Family and Animals a-hoard,
The Earth greatly heaved Volcanos erupting, the underground water burst forth a-gushing,
The protective water layer in the atmosphere, came pouring down endless causing panic and fear
For 40 days and nights this pattern continued, Till all life was extinguished man’s line dis-continued.
Imagine the panic and sheer desperation, of every tribe people and nation,
All was taken away without time to grieve, violent death ruled the time without reprieve
Sinners that chose to ignore God’s warnings, doomed to never again to see the Sun’s dawning,
The great day of Wrath had caught them all quickly, the Lord’s will was done, and that right strictly.
After a time, the flood waters waned, and slowly the Earth’s surface was revealed again,
But the old world was gone all was anew, the land was re shaped the sky was now blue.
All were released to inhabit new ground, give praise to the Lord that we all still around,
Now four and a half odd thousand years later, we’ve come full circle our memories no greater!
