God Gently Stooped Down – In Verse


I shared a couple of days ago on the topic of God stooping down and it seemed to not only strike a chord with some of my readers, – Thanks guys for responding and commenting. But that phrase “God stooped down” resonated over and over in my heart. I could hear it at night as I lay in bed and in the morning again it rolled over and over in my thoughts as I went about my chores. I hope you will like the little verse I wrote today that shares as best as I am able the echoes in my heart.

Who is like the Lord our God, the One who sits enthroned on high, who stoops down to look on the heavens and the earth? Psalm 113:5-6, NIV

On the sixth day in morning the Lord God stooped down
Scooped clay from the earth to make man from the ground
He bent down lower still to breathe life into him
Then smiled to see man’s first day begin

As they walked through the garden God showed him the trees
The elephants, zebras and mountains and seas
But with all that God made Adam still was alone
So God gently bent down to form Eve from his bones

But when they saw fruit that God said not to take
They ignored His command and death was awake
Yet God wasn’t finished - He did not walk away
He just waited and watched till His chosen day

When at Bethlehem’s stable He gently stooped down
And entered our world in the dark of that town
Till on a hill and a cross God stooped lower still
Took the nails and the thorns so we could be healed

Then sadly His friends took Him down from the tree
Placed Him in the tomb where no one could see
Till on the third day God rolled back the stone
And gave us new life as He gently stooped down!

My wife and I serve as members of a worship team at a multicultural church. Our members are from Brazil, Nepal and the U.S.. Because of the many languages and cultures in our local body we face unique challenges, such as how many songs will we do in English today? What new songs can we use in either language that are simple enough for the people to sing. The songs, the devotions and insights here are a small portion of some of the ways God is leading us as we push towards the goal. I pray that these will be both a blessing and an encouragement for those of you who may pass by Praise 2 Worship.

    1. Thank you David for your comments and also suggesting this verse. It really amplified what I saw in the parallel reference I had used yesterday. It is interesting how different translations render quite different results.
