Poetry Recital: Love Poem – Gladly Then Did the World Arise

Salaam and Greetings of Peace:

My second reading of poetry on YouTube, a recital of a Love Poem – Gladly Then Did the World Arise.  The poem is also posted below the video.

Love Poem

Gladly then did the world arise
By that one mighty word of power… Love!
From any other word quite apart
It rejoices in the willing heart
And binds the planets to their skies
And shines in You the brighter to my eyes

Night, come bring the dippers and Orion’s belt
To gird the firmament and bind us to His boundless will
That my heart, which has never felt such sentiment
May feel it then the deeper still

Give it not to chance then, nor say instead ’twas fate
That we have met in time who might have met too late
In the understanding of two hearts that may for earlier years amend
As our time flows like a river, unfelt til journeys end

– Irving Karchmar, 1986

Ya Haqq!

    Gladly then did the world arise and gladly will we humbly and reverentially arise to praise God for loving us so tenderly!

    Friends. don’t fall into the trap of attributing God’s blessing on your life to chance or fate; for his steadfast love is a gift from a living, loving person! Behold how powerful is holy God’s creative, loving word! Friends, as long as our heart is willing to submit to God’s perfect we will rejoice and praise him. Truly by his word he holds planets firmly in their orbit and by his living word he stops us orbiting all over the place.

    Shine, Jesus, shine so that we can shine even more powerfully to your glory. So friends, turn now to faithful Jesu’s words in the holy Bible, trust and obey them and be blessed, like never before, by Almighty God.
