05. God is God

Declaration
by Steven Curtis Chapman



 

And the pain falls like a curtain
On the things I once called certain
And I have to say the words I fear the most
I just donít know

And the questions without answers
Come and paralyze the dancer
So I stand here on the stage afraid to move
Afraid to fall, oh, but fall I must
On this truth that my life has been formed from the dust

God is God and I am not
I can only see a part of the picture Heís painting
God is God and I am man
So Iíll never understand it all
For only God is God

And the sky begins to thunder
And Iím filled with awe and wonder
ĎTil the only burning question that remains
Is who am I

Can I form a single mountain
Take the stars in hand and count them
Can I even take a breath without God giving it to me
He is first and last before all that has been
Beyond all that will pass

Oh, how great are the riches of His wisdom and knowledge
How unsearchable for to Him and through Him and from Him
are all things

So let us worship before the throne
Of the One who is worthy of worship alone

Behind the Song:
"The song sums up best what Iíve been going through the last few years. ĎGod is God and I am not.í That says where Iíve been. Thatís the declaration that Iíve come away with having to make about some of the pain as well as the great incredible things Iíve experienced. God is the one in control of all of this, itís not me. Itís like a curtain falls over everything that I once felt I knew for sure. Pain has a way of doing that in our lives. Especially when we walk through seasons when we donít understand whatís going on. Itís like this big covering falls over everything we know. When thatís gone what do I have to hold on to? I say in the lyric, ĎI have to say the words I fear the most - I just donít know.í Itís not something I like to say. With this song I felt like thatís what I had to say and acknowledge. In doing so there is a real freedom that comes in that to say ĎI donít have to know.í The reality is Iím a lot worse off than I think anyway. I need a Savior. I need a God who can rescue me so I donít have to know." - Steven Curtis Chapman
