TO AN ATHEIST

How can you say there is no God?
Who do you think you are?
Who do you think made the earth,
The sun and moon and stars?
Everything that lives on land,
In the sky or in the sea,
Was made by our creatorís hand,
And not by you and me.

Just because you havenít seen him
Doesnít mean he isnít there.
God is a spirit moving on the water.
God is everywhere.

How can you say there is no God?
What do you believe?
Either you believe in God,
Or else you are deceived.
Do you trust your fortune to the stars,
Black magic, crystal balls,
Psychic hotlines, tarot cards?
Do you have any faith at all?

Just because you havenít seen him
Doesnít mean he isnít there.
God is a spirit moving on the water.
God is everywhere.

How can you say there is no God?
Why do you think weíre here?
Where do you think salvation lies?
Donít you know the time is near?
Is there no purpose to this life?
Do you think itís all a game?
What do you think youíll have to say
When the good Lord calls your name?

Antlers, Oklahoma, 1998
