15 Poems about God that will Make you Renew your Faith in Him

15 Poems about God that will Make you Renew your Faith in Him.

Poems about God – Faith In God is one way of saying you have to defy logic. You have to think positively to believe that there is a God who cares about our pain in ways that surpass our understanding.

To believe in the universe, or yourself after failing numerous times is to have courage and faith is that act f courage.

It is getting up to face your fears and believe that God will help you no matter the problems o obstacles that come your way.

Faith is choosing to believe that even if you have failed one thousand times before that you can still try the very next time and succeed.

Poems about God

1. My Great God

God, I see Your tender love in all the things around me,
I feel your comfort when I’m down and know that You surround me.
With blessings that I cannot count, with grace beyond all measure,
With mercy that I don’t deserve, with things that bring me pleasure.

Would I be brazen, Lord, to ask, why I deserve attention?
Do I have merits of my own, a virtue you could mention?
I feel indebted to Your love, so privileged, so accepted,
I want to show my gratitude and somehow feel respected.

But I am but a puny man, a selfish, sinful spirit,
And You are oh, so holy God, such grace no man can merit.
You make the clouds your chariot, You walk upon the mountains;
You speak and all the earth is stilled; fierce storms become still fountains.

O, God, instill in me a faith that spans my every hour,
And let me know how great You are; reveal Your holy power.
May I be used in some small way to teach Your grace and glory.
Help me to show the world Your love, to spread salvation’s story.
Poem by Greta Zwaan

2. When I Survey the Wondrous Cross

When I survey the wondrous cross
On which the Prince of glory died,
My richest gain I count but loss,
And pour contempt on all my pride.

Forbid it, Lord, that I should boast,
Save in the death of Christ my God;
All the vain things that charm me most–
I sacrifice them to His blood.

See, from His head, His hands, His feet,
Sorrow and love flow mingled down;
Did e’er such love and sorrow meet,
Or thorns compose so rich a crown?

Were the whole realm of nature mine,
That were a present far too small:
Love so amazing, so Divine,
Demands my soul, my life, my all.
Poem by Isaac Watts

3. God Full Of Mercy

God-Full-of-Mercy, the prayer for the dead.
If God was not full of mercy,
Mercy would have been in the world,
Not just in Him.
I, who plucked flowers in the hills
And looked down into all the valleys,
I, who brought corpses down from the hills,
Can tell you that the world is empty of mercy.
I, who was King of Salt at the seashore,
Who stood without a decision at my window,
Who counted the steps of angels,
Whose heart lifted weights of anguish
In the horrible contests.

I, who use only a small part
Of the words in the dictionary.

I, who must decipher riddles
I don’t want to decipher,
Know that if not for the God-full-of-mercy
There would be mercy in the world,
Not just in Him.
Poem by Yehuda Amichai

4. A Hymn to God the Father

Wilt thou forgive that sin where I begun,
Which was my sin, though it were done before?
Wilt thou forgive that sin, through which I run,
And do run still, though still, I do deplore?
When thou hast done, thou hast not done,
For I have more.

Wilt thou forgive that sin which I have won
Others to sin, and made my sin their door?
Wilt thou forgive that sin which I did shun
A year or two, but wallow’d in, a score?
When thou hast done, thou hast not done,
For I have more.

I have a sin of fear, that when I have spun
My last thread, I shall perish on the shore;
But swear by thyself, that at my death thy Son
Shall shine as he shines now, and heretofore;
And, having done that, thou hast done;
I fear no more.
Poem by Dr. Oliver Tearle

5. God Has Pity On Kindergarten Children

God has pity on kindergarten children,
He pities school children — less.
But adults he pities not at all.

He abandons them,
And sometimes they have to crawl on all fours
In the scorching sand
To reach the dressing station,
Streaming with blood.

But perhaps
He will have pity on those who love truly
And take care of them
And shade them
Like a tree over the sleeper on the public bench.

Perhaps even we will spend on them
Our last pennies of kindness
Inherited from mother,

So that their own happiness will protect us
Now and on other days.
Poem by Yehuda Amichai

6. Walking With God

Oh! for a closer walk with God,
A calm and heavenly frame;
A light to shine upon the road
That leads me to the Lamb!

Where is the blessedness I knew
When first I saw the Lord?
Where is the soul-refreshing view
Of Jesus and his word?

What peaceful hours I once enjoyed!
How sweet their memory still!
But they have left an aching void,
The world can never fill.

Return, O holy Dove, return!
Sweet the messenger of rest!
I hate the sins that made thee mourn
And drove thee from my breast.

The dearest idol I have known,
Whatever that idol be,
Help me to tear it from thy throne,
And worship only thee.

So shall my walk be close with God,
Calm and serene my frame;
So purer light shall mark the road
That leads me to the Lamb.
Poem by William Cowper

7. Contentment

Contentment comes from peace within when worldly thoughts are still;
When a heart is right with God when you obey His will.
“Be still and know that I am God, I know the path you’ll take;
Though some decisions may be hard and cause your heart to ache.

I promise I will not forsake or leave you all alone,
I’ll walk beside you all the way, and see you safely home.
I have prepared a place for you where tears will fall no more,
Where loneliness does not exist, beyond the golden shore.

Remember all I’ve given you, perhaps not wealth or fame;
But everything that you required to which your hand laid claim.
‘Twas in your interest that I gave all that was best for you,
Not for your greed but for your good, I always walked with you.

Be not concerned that others have things you could not attain;
Contentment ought to fill your heart that you can bless My name.
I carried you through trying times and drew you close to me;
I’ll never, ever walk away – you’re Mine, and yet you’re free.”
Poem by Greta Zwaan

8. The Revival

Unfold! Unfold! Take in His light,
Who makes thy cares shorter than night.
The joys which with His day-star rise
He deals with all but drowsy eyes;

And, what the men of this world miss
Some drops and dews of future bliss.
Hark! How His winds have changed their note!
And with warm whispers call thee out;

The frosts are past, the storms are gone,
And backward life, at last, comes on.
The lofty groves in express joys
Reply unto the turtle’s voice;

And here in dust and dirt, O here
The lilies of His love appear!
Poem by Henry Vaughan

Poems about God

9. The Greatest Artist (God God God God God God God)

God is the greatest artist
To whom no one can compare,
Streaking sunsets very beautiful,
Painting rainbows in the air.

Brushing green the hillside scene,
Blotting blue the sky above,
Splashing flowers ‘cross the ground beneath,
Shading white clouds with His glove.

Of the wonders God has made
There is none that is so fair
As the smile, He paints upon your face
When you realize He’s there.
Poem by Udiah (witness to Yah)

10. There Is No God, The Wicked Sayeth

“There is no God,” the wicked saith,
“And truly it’s a blessing,
For what He might have done with us
It’s better only guessing.”

“There is no God,” a youngster thinks,
“or really, if there may be,
He surely did not mean a man
Always to be a baby.”

“There is no God, or if there is,”
The tradesman thinks, “’twere funny
If He should take it ill in me
To make a little money.”

“Whether there be,” the rich man says,
“It matters very little,
For I and mine, thank somebody,
Are not in want of victual.”

Some others, also, to themselves,
Who scarce so much as doubt it,
Think there is none, when they are well,
And do not think about it.

But country folks who live beneath
The shadow of the steeple;
The parson and the parson’s wife,
And mostly married people;

Youths green and happy in first love,
So thankful for illusion;
And men caught out in what the world
Calls guilt, in first confusion;

And almost everyone when age,
Disease, or sorrows strike him,
Inclines to think there is a God,
Or something very like Him.
Poem by Arthur Hugh Clough

11. Thee, God, I Come From

Thee, God, I come from, to thee go,
All day long I like fountain flow
From thy hand out, swayed about
Mote-like in thy mighty glow.

What I know of thee I bless,
As acknowledging thy stress
On my being and as seeing
Something of thy holiness.

Once I turned from thee and hid,
Bound on what thou hadst forbid;
Sow the wind I would; I sinned:
I repent of what I did.

Bad I am, but yet thy child.
Father, be thou reconciled.
Spare thou me, since I see
With thy might that thou art mild.

I have life before me still
And thy purpose to fulfil;
Yea a debt to pay thee yet:
Help me, sir, and so I will.

But thou bidst, and just thou art,
Me shew mercy from my heart
Towards my brother, every other
Man my mate and counterpart.
Poem by Gerard Manley Hopkins

12. Heart Of God

O great heart of God,
Once vague and lost to me,
Why do I throb with your throb to-night,
In this land, eternity?

O little heart of God,
Sweet intruding stranger,
You are laughing in my human breast,
A Christ-child in a manger.

Heart, dear heart of God,
Beside you now I kneel,
Strong heart of faith. O heart not mine,
Where God has set His seal.

Wild thundering heart of God
Out of my doubt I come,
And my foolish feet with prophets’ feet,
March with the prophets’ drum.
Poem by Vachel Lindsay

13. I Love You, Jesus

When I look at you, crucified on the cross,
I come face to face with the evil of sin.
when I look at you, abandoned by man,
I just want to sing to you in the best way I can.
I love you, Jesus
I love you, so much
stay with me, don’t leave me,
I want to love you until the day that I die.

when I look at you, hung on the cross,
I look into your face, I see my friend.
when I look at you, forsaken by man,
I feel sore to my bones, but forever to you in debt.
I love you, Jesus
I love you, so much
stay with me, don’t leave me,
I want to love you until the day that I die.

when I look at you, in pain on the cross,
my heart miss a beat, tears run down my face.
when I look at you, insulted by man,
I feel your love inside me, your love with no end.
I love you, Jesus
I love you, so much
stay with me, don’t leave me,
I want to love you until the day that I die.
Poem by Caroline Falzon

14. Lost Without You

When I wake up in the morning I seek you face
I look for you everywhere because you brighten my days
Days without you brings misery to me
I don’t want to miss a single bit of you
This world is not my final home lest I became comfortable in it
My life is the opposite of what I thought it will be
It seemed nice and sweet but now its bitter
Lord, don’t let the sun go down on me

Come to my heart and save me
Come to my heart and relieve me of this pain am feeling
The devil can’t torment me no more, I have found you
Brighten my days and give me a reason for living
Help me make wise and soundful decisions
Lord, don’t let the sun set on me
Revive me in your righteousness

Have pity on me Lord, I surrender my life to you
Come to my heart, I long for your love
Life without you is so dull and lifeless
You are the one I desire in my life Arise and lift me up and set me firm high ground
For surely I have realized that I am lost without you
Lord, lead me through this journey of life
Poem by Hope Tshuma

15. Eternal Love

My heart longs for You so much
Without You I can’t do anything
Your love keeps me going to face each day as it comes
Your love gives me strength to make it in this busy world
Your comfort, keeps me whole and secure
Come to my heart, I miss You

Days without You are meaningless and lifeless
Feel my heart with love, so I share it
Hold my hand and what with me
Teach me to be loving, giving and moreover to be able to forgive
To forgive those I have hurt in this walk of life
To forgive those whose toes I have stepped on
To forgive myself of many mistakes and ungodly decisions I have made in the past
Surround me with you never ending love

Change my heart and mind and give me new thoughts
Surround me with Your everlasting love
Hold me in Your arms where I will be safe
Create in me a clean pure heart
I long for You, days without you are sorrowful
Take my hand and walk with me all the way
Your love keeps me warm, safe and secure
May your Will be done in my life
May Thy Kingdom Come
Poem by Hope Tshuma
