The Alpha and the Omega – A Poem

This week I’ve been thinking about how awesome our God is, and how thankful I am for His Glory. Each morning I begin my prayers by praising God as the Alpha and Omega. He is the creator of all things, seen and unseen. So I decided to write my Thankful Thursday poem in praise of His wonder.

The Alpha and the Omega

You are the Alpha and the Omega
The beginning and the end
Before You there was nothing
There will be only You in the end

You are the Alpha and the Omega
Your glory will not cease
When all You’ve created is gone
There will remain Your peace

You are the Alpha and the Omega
Creator of all that is good
Both the seen and the unseen
In awe before You stood

You are the Alpha and the Omega
My living God of grace
You offer love and mercy
Never leaving us in disgrace

You are the Alpha and the Omega
Your name exalted on high
Yet You humbled Yourself
So Your people would never die

You are the Alpha and the Omega
You promise to make all things new
To take away all sin and death
All that You promise is true

You are the Alpha and the Omega
You owe nothing, yet intend
To bless Your whole creation
From beginning to the end

Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea. I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Now the dwelling of God is with men, and he will live with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.”

He who was seated on the throne said, “I am making everything new!” Then he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.”

He said to me: “It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. To him who is thirsty I will give to drink without cost from the spring of the water of life. He who overcomes will inherit all this, and I will be his God and he will be my son.”

Revelation 21:1-7 (NIV).

  4. Linda, I so look forward to your thankful Thursday poems. :) Thank you and thanks to Ann for suggesting it!
    This one especially touched me and one of the reasons why is what it stemmed from, your personal worship time each morning. That really grabbed me and also challenges me to return to writing/journaling , creating my own worship songs and poems. . .just for Him.
    God bless you, Linda, and all the ways you bless us!

    • Deb, I am thankful that Ann suggested this theme, too! I think of that every week when I sit down to write my poem. And I’m also thankful that you have inspired me to write poetry, which I never thought I could really do. Then on top of that I am always blessed by your comments and knowing that you look forward to Thankful Thursday! It’s just one blessing after another from the Lord. You really should get back to writing worship songs and poems – I’ll bet they would be awesome because they would always focus on and point us to Jesus. :) You do already write the simple worship poems, but I’ll bet you could write some longer ones if you wanted to. Peace, Linda
