Oceans Teem

Psalm 104:24-25 “How many are your works, O Lord! In wisdom you made them all; the earth is full of your creatures. There is the sea, vast and spacious, teeming with creatures beyond number–living things both large and small.” (NIV)*

The oceans teem with creatures

Too numerous to know

An underwater fish tank filled

With life he made just so.

………………..

Man’s eyes may never see

All the wonders hidden there

An aquarium brimming full

Of creatures in his care.

………………..

If he cares for all these creatures

That eyes will never see

How much more does his heart bend

To care for such as me?

………………..
