Wondering - Poem by Dan Pugh

How fishes swim and swallows fly,
How hedgehogs scratch their fleas,
How paper nests are made by wasps,
And acorns grow to trees...

How honeybees sweet nectar find,
How robins paint their breasts,
How rabbits burrow underground,
And sticklebacks build nests...

Why sunbeams shine and raindrops fall,
Why rivers run downhill,
Why Earth is always full of sounds,
And winds are never still...

Why daytime follows every night,
Why we awake from sleep,
Why none can tell what memory is,
And where our souls we keep...

How God can care enough for me
To do what He has done...
To save me when I fell from grace
Why did He give His Son?
