I’d never make a rainbow,
Because I would never let it rain;
I’d never heal an illness,
Because I would allow no pain.
Man would never know joy,
Because I wouldn’t permit sorrow,
And there would be no hope,
Because I would make no tomorrow.
And there would be no forgiveness,
Because I wouldn’t go to the cross;
This world would be such a hopeless place,
…IF I WERE GOD

The Lord is righteous in all His ways,
Gracious in all His works. (Psalm 145:17)
