                    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.
