Incomprehensible.

Have you ever examined a butterfly wing?

Listened to a chorus of 10-year olds sing?

Looked into a puppy's big bright brown eyes?

Jumped out of an airplane and into the skies?

 

     Sometimes we miss it, but it is still there,

     Incomprehensible, everywhere,

     but still rare.

 

Have you ever considered the spring of the tiger?

Listened to whales as they beat the waves higher?

Looked at a garden just ready to bloom?

Jumped with friends when the fireworks let out their boom?

 

     Sometimes we miss it, but it is still there,

     Incomprehensible, everywhere,

     but still rare.

     It's not just a feeling, or a passing prayer,

     Incomprehensible, everywhere,

     but still rare.

 

Have you ever watched the sun blaze for two seasons straight?

Listened to your cousin swing closed the yard gate?

Looked at the winter ice form on the lee?

Jumped into a pile of brilliant leaves?

 

     Sometimes we miss it, but it is still there,

     Incomprehensible, everywhere,

     but still rare.

     It's not just a feeling, or a passing prayer,

     Incomprehensible, everywhere,

     but still rare.

     Life is astounding, beyond any compare,

     Incomprehensible, everywhere,

     but still rare.

 

Have you ever noticed the power of joy?

Listened to compassion bring home someone’s boy?

Looked at the power of love saving life?

Jumped to help lost girl’s move out of their strife?

 

     Sometimes we miss it, but it is still there,

     Incomprehensible, everywhere,

     but still rare.

     It's not just a feeling, or a passing prayer,

     Incomprehensible, everywhere,

     but still rare.

     Life is astounding, beyond any compare,

     Incomprehensible, everywhere,

     but still rare.

     It seems ordinary, yet renews with fresh air,

     Incomprehensible, everywhere,

     but still rare.

 

There’s no way around it!

Just look all about!

When you take it all in, there’s no room left for doubt!

This world is a gift, and every day too!

Because someone out there desperately loves YOU.

 

     Sometimes we miss Him, but He is still there,

     Incomprehensible, everywhere,

     but still rare.

     He's not just a feeling, or a passing prayer,

     Incomprehensible, everywhere,

     but still rare.

     His work is astounding, beyond any compare,

     Incomprehensible, everywhere,

     but still rare.

     Can’t seem ordinary, yet renews our fresh air,

     Incomprehensible, everywhere,

     but still rare.
