A Mathematician's Psalm

A Mathematician's Psalm
Gene Chase

Praise You, O Lord, for inverse square laws
By which You hold the earth to the sun
And warm us just enough.

Praise You, O Lord, for the exponential function
And its inverse the logarithm
So pain does not double with pressure,
But growth is proportional to capacity.

Praise You, O Lord, for the continuity of creation.
Cars don't break down in an instant without warning;
Eyesight dims without sudden blackness;
Memory and imagination link past and future with the present;
Heaven is a prepared place for prepared people.

Let all that has functional representation praise the Lord!

Praise ye the Lord.
