New Living Translation (NLT)
13 It was my hand that laid the foundations of the earth,
my right hand that spread out the heavens above.
When I call out the stars,
they all appear in order.”
Where in the World?
Are you ever puzzled?
Does it ever give you pause?
Is there a reason for our life on Earth,
Or did we happen just because?
Did we just come up through the chain,
From some celestial ooze?
Dropped here from some distant star,
On an asteroid we did not choose,
Or were we planned and altered,
By a passing alien craft?
Who just wondered if it might be fun,
Then flew away and laughed,
I guess I’m just a troglodyte,
Who’s blissfully stuck in the past,
I like to dream God had a hand,
In how our lives were cast,
And that He still cares for us,
While He watches from above,
And blesses us with mercy and grace,
And never-ending love.
