You Are the God

From Rob Stearns

I had been thinking about a couple verses in Ps 94 for a couple of days when I got the news that a sister of a dear friend of mine had just been diagnosed with cancer.  The way these verses were playing in my head had a completely different context as to what I just wrote.  I crawled into bed shortly after getting the news.  I was wide awake, although it was late.  These verses wouldn’t let me sleep…they took on a completely different meaning.

This poem became a poem with double meanings.  A praise to God that He is the maker of every part of us…and a petition to heal.

You are the God

You are the God
The God of our eyes
You have shown us so many—
Let us see your ways

You are the God
The God of our ears
You have told us so many—
Let us hear your voice

You are the God
The God of our minds
You have taught us so many—
Let us know your will

You are the God
The God of our hearts
You have touched us so many—
Let us beat for you

You are the God
The God of our trials
You have held our hands so many—
Let us triumph for you

You are the God
The God of our bodies
You have groomed us so many—
Let us live for you

You are the God
The God of our souls
You have healed us so many—
Let us be healed for you
