The Answer

    The Answer

    Do you ever wonder

    How rain can fall

    And how ivy finds its way

    Up the garden wall?

    Or why a flower grows

    From a tiny little seed,

    Or how a parent bird can know

    What its babies need?

    Do you ever stop to think

    How wonderful is snow

    And how, without a person’s help,

    Roadside weeds can grow?

    Do you ever wonder—

    Oh so many things—

    How creatures grow, and walk, and run,

    And why butterflies have wings?

    There is just one answer—

    One source for all that’s good,

    One reason why so many things

    Happen as they should—

    And that’s because our Heavenly Father

    Has all things in His care,

    And His loving tenderness

    Reaches everywhere.
