Let there be light, and there was light,
The first book testifies,
Twas our great God who made the worlds,
The water, earth, and skies.
Gods people cried, Deliver us!
In Exodus were told,
A lamb was slain, the way was made,
His great plan to unfold.
God showed His strength to Joshua;
In battle, he prevailed.
Send Levites now, with trumpets, march!
Gods promise never failed.
The temple stood in ruin great
And Ezra heard the call:
Restore My house and with My strength,
Build up the broken walls.
Gods greatness in poetic song,
The psalmists sang His praise.
The Shepherd gently leads His flock,
To Him their voices raised.
I saw the Lord, high, lifted up,
Exalted Holy One.
The seraphs flew, the thresholds shook.
Isaiah Im undone!
Hear ye, all nations, tongues, and men,
Bow down or live no more!
Three Hebrews stood refused to bow,
Delivered by the Lord.
Habakkuk cried, Ive heard Your fame,
I stand in awe of You!
Gods splendor in the heavns above
His greatness, He has proved!
A messenger the Lord will send,
And hell prepare the way.
The coming Christ, said Malachi,
Who may abide that day?
A Child was born in Bethlehem,
A Savior to redeem.
God sent His Lamb to set men free,
His plan for man now seen.
In Matthew, Hes the King of Jews,
A Servant, Mark made known.
In Luke, He is the Son of Man,
In John, Gods Son enthroned.
In Acts, He is the Holy Ghost,
At Pentecost He came.
Men now empowered with boldness new,
The Word of God proclaimed.
Paul taught the church at Ephesus,
As children, live in light.
Be strong and with His armor on,
Stand firm in His great might!
Grace, peace to you from God above
Colossians, Paul began,
In Christ the fullness of our God
Took form like as a man
An everlasting covenant,
Gods faithfulness defined.
What some have called The Hall of Faith
In Hebrews we do find.
But you, dear friends, Build up yourselves
In Gods most holy faith.
Writes Jude, In Gods love keep yourself,
And praying as you wait.
The King of kings and Lord of lords,
The end of times revealed.
The greatness of His righteousness,
The Greatness of our God and King,
The Word of Truth proclaims.
Our Mighty and Eternal Lord
Is due mankinds acclaim!
