How did the inspiration come To those who did the writing Of Holy Scripture that we read? Was it a bolt of lightening? And did it fill the room with light As God’s most Holy Words? Or come as whispers of His thoughts? Regardless, God transferred The words He wanted men to know, The meaning of it all, The seven days creation took, What happened from the Fall, The promise He fulfilled in our Messiah, His own Son Who died for us and rose again. For God loved everyone. He laid it out so perfectly And promised we would be With Him a last when this life passed, His wondrous face to see. And live forever by His side In Heaven’s awesome glory. The inspiration came from God, Our Bible tells the story. It matters not how God inspired The words He gave the writers, But rather that those words were HIS. They served as God’s transcribers.
