Where the world comes to study the Bible

Where Is God?

“Where is God?” inquired the mind:
“To His presence I am blind. . . .
I have scanned each star and sun,
Traced the certain course they run;

I have weighed them in my scale,
And can tell when each will fail;
From the caverns of the night
I have brought new worlds to light;

I have measured earth and sky
Read each zone with steady eye;
But no sight of God appears
In the glory of the spheres.”

But the heart spoke wistfully,
“Have you looked at Calvary?”

- Thomas C. Clark
