I Am the Way


Life finds a way. In boiling springs Bacteria thrive; And toxic waters Come alive.

Life finds a way On ocean floors. In utter dark Biolumined creatures spark: Life finds a way.

Life finds a way In solid rock, On wind-blown scree Clings stubborn tree: Life finds a way.

Life finds a way. High, high on ancient peak, Mid snow-drifts deep Snow leopards sleep: Life finds a way.

God finds a way. Through boiling springs; Through utter darkness; Through despair; His choir of angels ever sings.

In barren soil God’s power sprouts. from mountain tops Love, joyful, shouts: “God ever, always finds the way.”
