How Do You Do That (The Waiting)

Maybe I could understand How you called the darkness light Maybe I could understand How you made the waters flee Maybe I could understand How you gave all creation life I'm an educated man It's not too hard for me to see But there's something about you That confuses me yet First you forgive Then you forget How do Lord? Oh do, Lord, tell me How do you do that? How do you do that? It's not too hard for me to see How you stilled the raging water Not too hard for me to see How you walked on it like the land It's not too hard for me to see How you woke the sleeping daughter I'm holding my degree Think maybe I could understand And I've known your forgiveness For each and all of my days But the way you've forgotten Leaves me truly amazed How do Lord? Oh do, Lord, tell me How do you do that? How do you do that? You know the hairs on my head Yeah, you've named every star But I'm bowing on my knee At how forgetful you are You forgive, you forget You forgive then you forget...
