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.
