The Beginning

“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” 

Genesis 1:1 

By faith we know, the world was made

Formless at first and void: 

We know, the universe decayed 

Shall be by fire destroyed: 

But soon the coeternal Son 

We shall in glory view, 

Jehovah sitting on his throne, 

Creating all things new.
