And You Were There
When I was just , oh, but a thought,
You led me there to Earth.
And when I was just, so confused,
You showed me where to birth.
Born to man I grew up straight,
Floundering like all of the rest,
and you were there, and put me right
You've always known what's best.
I've seen you out of the corner,
Of an eye set to a task.
But when I looked more closely,
You'd left, before I could ask;
"Oh Lord, why all of this interest
in a nothing such as we,
and why give such compassion
to a sinner such as me?"
