How wonderful that on this Earth appeared
Organic matter from which we evolved,
Clear evidence the process has been steered,
Though by a mystery we have not solved.
Good Orderly Direction we call God
Has bought our sapient species into being,
Originating from a clump of sod,
Developing to consciousness far seeing.
And yet, for all we know, we still are blind,
Despite the power of our sciences,
To how and why this universal mind
Created us—just why all being is,
Though we’ve been taught by wisdom from above
Our purpose here is learning how to love.
