However has the universe brought us
To life and ever-questing consciousness
Who are derived from swirling cosmic dust?
I cannot know; at best, I can but guess.
It surely is no accident, but meant,
The upshot of a purpose and a plan
No randomness and chaos would prevent,
Resulting ultimately in life and man.
And who knows what elsewhere in outer space?
Good Orderly Direction is a fact,
Mysterious indeed, but yet the grace
By which the universe’s odds are stacked
And for this miracle, what attitude
Is apt for us to show? Why, gratitude.
