    An early bird star playing peek a boo (a)
    The sun sneaking back with a half of an eye (b)
    The moon displaying it's particular hue (a)
    This dazzling dance of light in the sky (b)

    The carving of this canyon so grand in the ground (a)
    Has harvested every accolade (b)
    God working his magic not making a sound (a)
    This breathtaking beauty He made (b)

    And kept for me and for you (b)

    These are some of the reasons that I do believe (a)

    Are the children entrusted to us (b)
