This is the fifth in a series of seven posts where I share my thoughts about my song Creation and the story in the first chapter of Genesis.
“On the fifth day God filled the sea and sky
With creatures that could swim and fly
He blessed each one as they passed His eye
That they’d be fruitful and multiply
So the fifth day God made the fish and bird
He made them all with His Holy word
And the fourth day God filled the sky with lights
The sun for day and the moon for nights
And the third day God made the plants and trees
He made dry ground and He made the seas
And the second day God made the sky
The water split so the firmament’s dry
And the first day God made the heavens and earth
Split the dark and light in the universe
And to mark the time there was morning and evening
And He saw that it was good”
The first animals are created by God on the fifth day. Again there is an order to this process. God chooses to fill the sky and the sea with animals before the earth is populated. I believe that this is more about showing order instead of trying to coordinate with any scientific explanation. God’s hand is present as His creation begins to fill with animals. This is evident in the story when tells them to be fruitful and multiply. The animals of the land would have to wait until day six.
