Angels were adoring God in eternity past
Adam was created to yield in praise that will last
God calls His church to give Him honor despite the fall
And in eternal state, to adore Him and extol

He’s a God who delights an undivided worship
A worship from His chosen angels and redeemed sheep
Have you ever asked the reason of your existence?
Yea, your prime end is to worship God with persistence

Alas! God commanded Moses, and Aaron made a plea
Pharoah!, “Let my people go, so that they may worship Me”
Israel was freed from Egypt’s bondage for one cause
Yea, To worship the holy God who died on the cross

Is He not worthy to be given the highest praise?
To worship Him of who He is and for all His ways?
For He has rescued an undeserving filthy you
From the terror of hell and slavery of sin too

Praise Him not because of hell’s dread nor heaven’s beauty
But, because you love Him in His perfect entity
Worship Him not in spirit only nor truth alone
Praise Him in spirit and truth: He who sits on the throne

“You honor Me with your lips, but your heart is far away”
Oh! may your worship be not like the Pharisee’s way
Be not a hypocrite in worshipping His name
To offer God an honest worship must be your aim

Indeed, to truly worship Him is to know Him more
To see His great attributes in the revealed scripture
Seeing your depravity and His holy Godship
Is in fact, a genuine spiritual worship

Worship and praise Him in everything you do and say
May your life be a living sacrifice all the way
Yes! There is no greater honor, no higher calling
Than to bow and kneel before the holy righteous King

    Go William, this poem is great! For some reason, I want to hear it in spoken word, that’d be awesome!

    And that’s so sweet of you to promote his work! We all know how hard it is to get out there, so that was super sweet!

        Yes. 😊 He writes at https://chosenrhapsodist.wordpress.com
        It’s been a long time since he posted anything, but he still writes. I think he’s too busy with school works.
