I cannot cause the sun to rise,
however strong I be.
I cannot make the sky look blue,
nor calm a raging sea.

I can’t create a rainbow,
nor wash the trees with rain;
I cannot make a bird to sing,
nor ripen fields of grain.

I cannot cause the sun to set,
nor hang a crescent moon;
I cannot usher in the dawn,
nor warm the day at noon.

I cannot light a firefly,
nor stop the morning dew;
I cannot build a mountain
with peaks of purple hue.

God’s world is full of many things
that I can never do,
But I can build a bridge of love
to reach from me to you.
