Cause and creation

A Christian Science perspective.

Some say the world began with fire –
Big Bang with molecules arranged.
There’s much in that view to admire,
But more with “things for thoughts” exchanged!

If empty void was first, you see,
It yields a universe that’s bleak.
Cold matter makes up all, and we –
We’re just material physique.

But still, I’ve heard a different call;
A view divine with higher laws.
Instead of nothing, start with ALL –
With God as our beginning Cause.
Eternal Love is at the helm!
When I look at the stars and see
God’s hand that guides this boundless realm
I’m grateful – and I’m overwhelmed –
To think He also cares for me.
