The Finger of God

The finger of God
Casts out demons,
Writes on the ground,
And gives commandments.
It writes on walls
To warn erring kings,
And heals so many people
Of so many things.
It sends forth lightning,
And shoots out fire,
Burning the bush,
And Elijah’s pyre.
It creates the heavens
To span wide and far,
And wisely ordains
The moon and stars.
It places the spit can mud
Wet in the ear,
And suddenly allows
The deaf to hear.
It makes a plaque
Man cannot imitate,
Troubles the water,
To rehabilitate.
The finger of God
Can do so much.
There’s so much power
In just one touch.
