Look at the World!

haven't written a song in a while... but got the creative urge yesterday, and let it brew... what inspired me was this beautiful pic of Lake Matheson in New Zealand, which is now my desktop pic.
so this morning, i wrote this song. it's title is the title of this post. =)

Verse 1:
Just look at the world all around us
Its beauty enchants and astounds us
Majestic mountain's grandeur
The golden sunset's splendour

How did all this beauty ever come to be?
Could it just have happened, accidentally?

Chorus 1:
Or maybe there's a Master Artist
Who thought up these designs
And gave each of us wondering hearts
To recognise His signs
And maybe all this wondrous beauty's
Meant for us to see
Clues that there's a loving God
Who cares for you and me!

Verse 2:
But look at the world a little closer
It isn't all beauty and wonder
Savage predators devour
Suffering and death every hour

If there's a God, then pain is not an accident
Are we subjects in some cruel experiment?

Chorus 2:
Or maybe we're the ones who've turned
Away His good design
Rebelling with our wandering hearts
Our eyes blind to His signs
And truly, in our proud rebellion
He could have let us be
But on the Cross, the loving God
He died for you and me.

Bridge:
Jesus Christ, both God and Man
Lived and died to show us God's salvation plan
Suffered death upon that cross, so that
We could be forgiven, and so we would know that:

Chorus 3:
Truly there's a Master Artist
Who thought up these designs
And gave each of us wondering hearts
To recognise His signs
And truly, all this wondrous beauty's
Meant for us to see
Clues that there's a loving God
Who cares for you and me:

Though sadly, we're the ones who've turned
Away His good design
Rebelling with our wandering hearts
Our eyes blind to His signs
And truly, in our proud rebellion
He could have let us be
But on the Cross, the loving God
He died for you and me!
