Magnificent Creation

He may just look like a guy, Sitting in an office chair,
Looking very ordinary indeed.
He may not make a lot of money, Or have a lot of hair!
But if you look a little closer, you will see:

That he’s a magnificent creation,
Crafted by the hand of God;
Created in His image for a noble purpose;
So don’t you think that it’s just a little odd
That we so often forget that he…
Is a magnificent creation!

She may just look like a woman, with an ordinary life;
She may have a bunch of kids; she may have none.
Oh, she might not be a beauty queen – she might not be a wife –
And she might not have gotten all the things on her task list done.

But she’s a magnificent creation,
The crowning creation of God –
Crafted in Mother’s image, for a wondrous purpose
So don’t you think that it’s just a little odd
That we so often forget that she…
Is a magnificent creation!

He and she, standing side by side,
Crafted by the same Almighty hand;
Each with their own mighty mission to fulfill!
Through the light of truth, we begin to understand…

That he’s a magnificent creation;
And she’s the crowning creation of God;
And as they learn to walk together,
Side by side in harmony;
As they learn to walk in respect and unity –
Then what they build up together can be –
A magnificent creation!

What they build up together can be –
A magnificent creation!
