If I Didn't Know, Explain To This Child

If I Didn’t Know

If I didn’t know you loved us with an everlasting love,
If I didn’t know of manna being rained down from above,
If I didn’t trust that everything was being used for good,
I would crumble all to pieces like some people think I should.

Explain To This Child

The times are so trying
My heart is so grieved
Explain to this child
Why her Daddy would leave
And answer the Mother
Where did things go wrong
And how have we stayed
Together so long
How did two lovers
End up being foes
What will become of us
Only God knows
