My Journey to God

Before All

Where was my soul before the sun,
Before the waters were loosed to run,
Before the mountains and valleys were made,
Before the grass was even a blade?

Where was the love that fills my heart,
Before the Earth and heavens did part,
Before the rains could cool the land,
Before the trees could take a stand?

Where was the passion that comes with grace,
Before there ever was this place,
Before the stars could kiss the night,
Before we knew of wrong or right?

Where was the hope that comes with faith,
Before there was a human race,
Before the birds were made to sing,
Before the winter or the spring?

Before the light could shine the way,
Before the dawn could bring a day,
Before there was a you or me,
Before all that was God, you see.
