It Passes All My Understanding

I usually post a scripture or a quote on Sundays, but I heard this song on the Mormon Channel today and the lyrics really got to me. And I wanted to share them with someone. It Passes All My Understanding by Cherie Call I was sitting on a southbound plane, I was buried in a magazine When the man in the next seat over Wanted to talk to me He talked about the universe, He talked about Saturn's rings He said, "I might be an atheist, Except for just one thing: It passes all my understanding How it all worked out just right The distance that we live from the sun, The stars that shine at night We may prove that it was just an accident But how did it begin? It passes all my understanding" I told him, "You are a scholar; You know things that I don't know But I believe a God in heaven Made everything below And I know we are his children; I've known it since I was two But when it comes to being struck with awe, I'm just like you It passes all my understanding, All the beauty we have here From the majesty of the canyons To a tiny baby's ear And even when I can't believe it, He still believes in me It passes all my understanding" We watched the sun set through the clouds In a tiny little airplane window With people sleeping all around And I thought of how we just expect this world to be And when the flight attendant passed me by I threw away my magazine It passes all my understanding, That the Lord knows both our names And that He made this world for everyone That was sitting on that plane And in spite of all of man's distractions He offers us His peace That passes all my understanding {image source}
