i saw god today lyrics – george strait

[verse 1:]
just walked down the street to the coffee shop,
had to take a break,
i’ve been by her side for eighteen hours straight,
saw a flower growing in the middle of the sidewalk,
pushing up through the concrete,
like it was planted right there for me to see,

the flashing lights,
the honking h*rns,
all seem to fade away,
but in the shadow of the hospital,
at 508,
i saw god today,

[chorus:]
i’ve been to church,
i’ve read the book,
i know he’s there,
but i don’t look,
near as often as i should,

his fingerprints are everywhere,
i just look down and stop and stare,
open my eyes and then i swear,
i saw god today,

[verse 2:]
saw a couple walking by,
they were holding hands,
and she had that glow,
ya, i couldn’t help,
but i noticed that she was starting to show,
stood there for a minute,
taking in the sky,
lost in that sunset,
a splashing down from mounting in shades of red,

[chorus:]
i’ve been to church,
i’ve read the book,
i know he’s there,
but i don’t look,
near as often as i should,

his fingerprints are everywhere,
i just look down and stop and stare,
open my eye and then i swear,
i saw god today,

[verse 3:]
got my face pushed up against the nursery gl*ss,
she’s sleeping like a rock,
my name on her wrist,
wearing tiny pink socks,
she’s got my nose,
she’s got her mama’s eyes,
my bran new baby girl,
she’s a miracle,
i saw god today
