Who am I in the morning when the day light calls my name?
When all around invite me to come here and join the game
“Come at once, pull up a chair and do not be so shy!”
Hearing what I’m not to be, I wonder, who am I?
Who am I at the mid-day meal – I cannot find a friend?
When all around me have someone – my someone is pretend
With hair of blue, a toothy smile, and mischief in his eye
Creating everything he is, I wonder, who am I?
Who am I in the evening-time when fire flies abound?
When the sun decides to hide himself – he’s nowhere to be found
The stars begin to twinkle in the dark part of the sky
In the absence of opinion – I wonder, who am I?
Who am I in my night-time dreams where imagination rules?
Am I fighting battles valiantly and finding precious jewels?
Do I find myself in blissful worlds, astonished I can fly?
Encountering the great I Am – who tells me who am I!
He tells me that he formed me from the dust of this green earth
His breath of life surrounds me and reveals what I am worth
He paints the picture of his Son who on the cross did die
Mindful is this great I Am – who tells me who am I!
3 When I consider your heavens,
the work of your fingers,
the moon and the stars,
which you have set in place,
4 what is mankind that you are mindful of them,
human beings that you care for them?
