Come, hear God speak the world into existence
Watch in wonder as He creates sun, moon and stars,
seas and dry land, fish, birds, and animals,
a man and a woman.
Walk with Adam and Eve as they talk with God
in the garden in the cool of the day.
Sorrow as they leave Paradise because of their sin,
with promises that a Savior will come.
Suppress a laugh as Noah builds and fills an ark
with many pairs of creatures.
Feel the rain as God floods the corrupt earth,
sparing all those in the ark.
Marvel with Abraham and Sarah at promises
of a son to be born in their old age—
descendants who will fill the earth,
One who will bless all the nations.
Put your foot on dry land as the Red Sea parts.
Crouch in fear as Moses climbs the trembling mountain.
Shout with Joshua as the walls of Jericho fall!
Journey with Naomi and meet your kinsman-redeemer.
Cheer little David as he slays the giant.
Sing praises to God with Psalms.
Learn of wisdom from Solomon.
Rebuild the broken-down walls with Ezra and Nehemiah.
Stand in the valley and see dry bones come to life.
Sleep in peace with Daniel in the lion’s den;
Feel the heat of the fiery furnace that doesn't hurt his three friends.
Believe the words of the prophets who describe the soon-coming One.
Walk with Jesus, the promised Messiah, as He teaches and heals.
Cry inconsolably as you watch him die,
But shout for joy when he triumphs over sin and death!
Stare as he ascends to the heavens, promising to return.
Receive the Spirit who comes with fire,
sending disciples forth with power.
Suffer with Paul through shipwreck, beatings and prison
as God reveals true grace and peace.
Shout with the saints as the kingdom of this world
Becomes the Kingdom of Our Lord and of his Christ
Gaze in excitement at new heavens, new earth,
and the New Jerusalem descending from above.
Glimpse eternity, in the pages of a book.
