Christian Poems

At the moment, all the modern Christian poems on this page are written by me. I wish I had some of my favorites that I wrote in my 20's, but I don't.


Our books consistently maintain 4-star and better ratings despite the occasional 1- and 2-star ratings from people angry because we have no respect for sacred cows.

Ancient Poems

Learning to Fly

by Paul Pavao

It's time to leave the bonds of earth
And soar the heavens high
To have the joys that only come
To those who've learned to fly

I lift a song in praise to him who's God alone
Then latch on by his grace as it rises to his throne
I swing along from song to song beholding as I do
The earth and all its merriments retreating from my view

Eventually the songs will come into an awesome place
Where even flight is left behind; we all regard God's face
There you stand on solid ground, pale yet full of hue
There even dragons fly and sing, and angels call him true

You'll never be alone again, if you've flown in those skies
You'll always know the wheres and whats, and not care 'bout the whys
A song that's spun by two or more is stronger than by one
And soon, when we have sung enough, we'll even bring the Son.

To My Wife

by Paul Pavao

The stars are jewels of colored light
When brightened by a moonless night
Trees rise majestic in sundry greens
When clothed with the new life of spring
The fields of snow, though trees be droll
Cleanse, make pure the human soul
And leaves enthrall, clothed with fire
When autumn feels the winter's ire
But all God's works, his finger drew
Pale when they're compared with you.

This is an ad written by me, Paul Pavao: I get a commission if you buy Xero shoes, which does not increase your cost. Barefoot running/walking is the best thing for your feet--if we did not walk on cement, asphalt, and gravel. Normal shoes compress your toes and do a lot of the work your lower leg muscles should be doing. Xero shoes are minimalist and let your toes spread and your feet do the work they are supposed to do.
