According to the pattern, there was heaven and earth.
God spoke into existence the beginning of this birth.
He created everything and divided the day from the night.
According to His pattern, He brought forth two great lights.
The stars were put in their place, giving honor to God's face
Whales came forth from the deepest seas, when God said, "Let it be".
All the earth brought forth its seeds, yielding grass, herbs and trees.
Birds sang and flew in the sky that day,
With praises to God for what He had made.
According to His pattern, God saw it was good,
And everything multiplied as it should.
Cattle and creeping things, beasts of the earth,
All came forth from this birth.
Therefore God said, "Let us make man,
After our likeness", and thus He began.
He formed this being from the dust of the ground,
While all His angels gathered round.
And breathed into his nostrils the breath of life,
Then put him to sleep to make him a wife.
From the smallest animal to the fowls of the air,
Every living creature was left in man's care.
Knowing in time man would be related,
God put in his keeping that which He created.
It was very good, every thing God had made,
So He rested from His work on the seventh day.
Thy hands have made me and fashioned me. Psalm 119:73a
I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Psalm 139:14a
