A Poem about God’s Names

Recently, I participated in a Bible study through #Proverbs31 Ministry on the various names of the Lord. I found it very interesting. As I pondered the names, I felt the Lord nudge me to write something about them. Here is the poem I wrote.

The Names of the Lord

My Lord, my God, My Elohim

Master creator of all the world agleam

Sun, moon and stars in the sky abiding

Land and sea and all the creatures residing

You created our ancestors, Adam and Eve

You created all beings including me

 

My Lord, my God, My El Roi

The Master who can see you and me

He watches over me each day and night

He wants to help all with hearts contrite

My burdens and worries He willingly bares

He knows me deeply and lovingly cares

 

My Lord, my God, My Jehovah Nissi

The Master who stands guard over me

He is my protector and fights on my behalf

He leads me by still waters using His staff

I lay down in peaceful meadows of lush green

He directs my paths to avoid trouble foreseen

 

My Lord, my God, My Jehovah Rapha

The Master who heals my ills and flaws

He provides for my body, mind and soul

His healing powers can make me whole

Even when my body begins to fail

My Savior’s love will always prevail

 

My Lord, my God, My Jehovah Shalom

The Master who brings peace to my home

Chaos may reign in the world all around

Christ’s perfect peace will my heart surround

I sleep soundly each night, safe in my bed

Sweet dreams of His peace filling my head

 

My Lord, my God, My Abba Father

To the Master, my whole heart I offer

The Lord is my shepherd, I lack for nothing

I serve my Savior, the Almighty High King

The names of God teach us of His goodness

A life lived for Him will be one of pureness
