God is God

Just caught closing minutes of a documentary on Joan Baez and this song featured. I’d never heard it before. Glad I heard it today.

“GOD IS GOD” (Lyrics)

(Steve Earle)

I believe in prophecy
Some folks see things
Not everybody can see
And once in a while
They pass the secret along
To you and me

And I believe in miracles
Something sacred burning
In every bush and tree
We can all learn to sing
The songs the angels sing

Yeah I believe in God
And God ain’t me

I’ve traveled around the world
Stood on mighty mountains
And gazed across the wilderness
Never seen a line in the sand
Or a diamond in the dust

And as our fate unfurls
Every day that passes
I’m sure about a little bit less
Even my money keeps telling me
It’s God I need to trust

And I believe in God
But God ain’t us

God of my little understanding
Don’t care what name I call
Whether or not I believe
Doesn’t matter at all
I receive the blessings
That every day on earth’s
another chance to get it right
Let this little light of mine
Shine and rage against the night

Just another lesson
Maybe someone’s watching
And wondering what I got
Maybe this is why I’m here on earth
And maybe not

But I believe in God
And God is God
