images-4This song is from the movie, Yentl.  The hymn expresses the idea that we do not limit ourselves in a beautiful universe.   There is beauty in the diversity of people and nature.  The Creator does not make mistakes.

Prayer (first, then song)

God, our merciful Father

I’m wrapped in a robe of light

Clothed in Your glory


That spreads its wings over my soul

May I be worthy, Amen


There’s not a morning I begin without

A thousand questions running through my mind


That I don’t try to find the reason

And the logic in the world that God designed

The reason why a bird was given wings

If not to fly and praise the sky


With every song it sings

What’s right or wrong, where I belong

Within the scheme of things


And why have eyes that see and arms that reach

Unless you’re meant to know there’s something more


If not to hunger for the meaning of it all

Then tell me what a soul is for?


Why have the wings unless you’re meant to fly

And tell me please, why have a mind

If not to question why?


And tell me where

Where is it written what it is I’m meant to be?

That I can’t dare

Unknown-1To have the chance to pick the fruit of every tree


Or have my share

Of every sweet imagined possibility?

Just tell me where, tell me where?


images-3If I were only meant to tend the nest

Then why does my imagination sail

Across the mountains and the seas

Beyond the make-believe of any fairy tale


images-4Why have the thirst if not to drink the wine?

And what a waste to have a taste

Of things that can’t be mine

And tell me where

Where is it written what it is I’m meant to be?


That I can’t dare

To find the meanings in the mornings that I see


Or have my share

Of every sweet imagined possibility

Just tell me where, where is it written

Tell me where, or if it’s written anywhere?
