this world

is a beautiful place.
it passes all my understanding
cherie call
"i was sitting on a southbound plane,
i was buried in a magazine
when the man in the next seat over
wanted to talk to me
he talked about the universe
he talked about saturn's rings
he said, i might be an atheist
except for just one thing

it passes all my understanding
how it worked out just right
the distance that we live from the sun,
the stars that shine at night
we may prove it was just an accident
but how did it begin?
it passes all my understanding

i told him, you are a scholar
you know things that i don't know
but i believe a god above
made everything below
and i know we are his children
i've known it since i was two
but when it comes with being struck with awe,
i'm just like you

it passes all my understanding
all the beauty we have here
from the majesty of the canyons
to a tiny baby's ear
and even when i can't believe it
he still believes in me

we watched the sun set through the clouds
in a tiny little airplane window
with people sleeping all around
and i thought of how we just expect this world to be
when the flight attendant passed me by
i threw away my magazine
it passes all my understanding
that the lord knows both our names
and that he made this world for everyone
that was sitting on that plane
and in spite of man's distractions
he offers us his peace
that passes all my understanding"

{i love knowing god did create this world and we are his children and he loves us more than we will ever know.}
