Lyrics

I Think on These Things
Music and Lyrics by Peter Link

When I consider the heavens
The works of thy fingers
The moon and the stars
You ordained

When I consider a child
The steps that he’s taking
His light and his joy
So ingrained

When I think of the way
That each breath comes unnoticed
Sustaining this delicate life

I am swept off my feet
In breathless wonder
At the mystery of life

When I consider the music
Of all the great masters
And know it was you
They all heard

And the works of our Shakespeares
King Davids and Keats
You gave them each
Every word

When I contemplate
The pure fabric of nature
Bewildered by all we have learned

I am swept off my feet
In breathless wonder
At the miracle of life

And I think on these things
And the wonder life brings
From the greatest of things to the small
And though I spend my life
Searching life’s solemn secrets
I know I’ll never know all

As I ponder the atom
The boundless vast ether
The billions of lives
On this stone

I consider the gift
Of God’s imagination
And begin to explore
The unknown

But this whimsical world
It just slips through my fingers
As I try to hold on to the air

And I’m swept off my feet
In breathless wonder
At the miracle of life

And I think on these things
Yes I think on these things
And the wonder life brings
