  • When God paints, birds sing
    He colors every feather on a sparrow's wings
    When God paints, the wind blows
    With a stroke of love, he dips his brush in a rainbow

    Sometimes I take for granted the simple things
    I can be his biggest critic when it starts to rain
    But there's always a bigger picture I can't explain

    When God paints, the heart beats
    Life begins, a season ends and lovers meet
    And I've learned that sometimes
    It's not always black and white or well-defined
    When God paints

    Sometimes I take for granted the simple things
    I can be his biggest critic when it starts to rain
    But there's always a bigger picture I can't explain

    When God paints, we dance
    And I reach across the canvas and I take your hand
    And my world is so complete
    When I look at you, a masterpiece is all I see
    When God paints

    Sometimes I take for granted the simple things
    I can be his big as critic when it starts to rain
    But there's always a bigger picture I can't explain

    When God paints
    I pray I always see the beauty inside the frame
