We walk in a world that is strange and unknown
And in the midst of the crowd we still feel alone,
We question our purpose, our part and our place
In this vast land of mystery suspended in space,
We probe and explore and try hard to explain
The tumult of thoughts that our minds entertain
But all of our probings and complex explanations
Of man's inner feelings and fears and frustrations
Still leave us engulfed in the 'mystery of life'
With all of its struggles and suffering and strife,
Unable to fathom what tomorrow will bring
But there is one truth to which we can cling,
For while life's a mystery we can't understand
The 'great giver of life' is holding our hand
And safe in His care there is no need for seeing
For 'in Him we live and move and have our being.'
