Creation

“Where were you when I laid the foundation of the earth?
 Tell me, if you have understanding.” Job 38:4

Who among us can know
how the universe was formed
out of nothing, how mankind
was made out of dust, how
woman was formed from man?
Who among us can know
the great depths of the ocean
or the heights of the heavens,
the distance from east to west
or the vast expanse of space?
Who among us can know
what holds the stars in space
or the number of the sands on
the seashores, or even the
number of hairs on our heads?
Who among us can know,
for who among us was there
when the world was formed,
there when God created
the heavens and the earth?
