The world goes mad around us
As I stand by and watch you sleep
In the hope that harm won't find us
I pray the lord our souls to keep
Does he see us here?
Are we precious in his sight?
Or are we merely dust on this tiny ball?
He hurled out into the night
Somewhere east of eden

From the first time that we stumble
We learn that nothing is assured
However hopelessly we tumble
It's by the grace of god that we endure
