The Great Eternal God

By Gerald Cowan

        Before the hills appeared,
        Before the rivers and the seas,
        Before the clouds were formed,
        Before the stirring of the breeze;
        Before a man was born,
        Or any other living thing;
        Before the rain or snow first fell,
        Before the flowers of spring;
        Before the paths of earth
        By mortal men were trod –
        Before it all, from everlasting was
        The Great Eternal God.

        When everything on earth
        Decays and disappears,
        As darkness of the night
        Dissolves when daylight nears;
        When all the starry universe
        Burns up and fades away
        With nothing left to measure time,
        No sense of night or day;
        When challengers and skeptics all
        Lie dead beneath the sod –
        Through everlasting there will be
        The Great Eternal God.
