Biblical Poetry
Biblically oriented poetry that is intended to encourage, build faith and draw believers into more of a love for God's Word. This poem expresses how God intially draws us unto Himself and plants our feet on the path of righteousness and what it means to unlock the keys to going further in our walk with Him.

As Years Go By
by Ken L. Birks


As the years go by we count our blessings one by one.

Looking back, we stand in awe with all God has done.

With our lives in His hands, He brings forth that which was concealed

Many run in circles, chasing rainbows, while others yield.

A life yielded bears much fruit with an eternal weight of glory.


As years go by many stand in wonder, with nothing achieved.

With regret in lives so wasted, nothing counted for or conceived.

Sadness fills the heart with wonderment of what could have emerged.

If only the voice within would have been listened to, rather than submerged.

Living for today seemed so enticing with nothing gained or enlarged.


As years go by, the more we understand, our lives are but a vapor

Here today and gone tomorrow, so little time to make them matter.

In the eternal weight of glory we must continually yield for a life, so pure.

The Lord’s will or our will, the ultimate decisions that determine our destiny

A life yielded to the Lord’s will is without regret, treasures stored for eternity.


Help us, Lord, to take our eyes off self and turn to You in all that we do.

Help us to see the eternal weight of your glory as the years make us anew.

Help us to make our lives count for something so holy and pure.

Help us to come to the end of ourselves so that We find You in all that we endure.

Help us to be forever grateful in all that You accomplish in and through.




Scripture references: 2 Corinthians 4:17-18, James 4:13-17, Matthew 6:18-21


This poem expresses the importance of making our lives count for something with the short span of time we have here on earth.
