lyrics

Can You Catch a Sea Monster

Verse 1
Where were you when the foundation of the world was made?
Who determined it’s thickness and it’s weight?
Who told the waves of the sea where they may go and must stop?
Who do the dawn and nightfall obey?
Have you walked through the gates of death?
Do you know the secrets of the grave?
Can you comprehend the span of the earth?
Where does light dwell? Where does darkness take its place?
Do you know the territory? Do you?
Chorus
How far have you walked in search of the depths of it all?
Have you ever entered the springs of the ocean?
Can you catch a sea monster? A sea monster?
Can you catch a sea monster? A sea monster?
Verse 2
Have you ever entered the treasury of snow or hail?
The frost of heaven, who gives it birth?
How high can you lift your voice?
Can you make it hit the clouds?
Can you make the water pour down?
Can you command the lightening?
Can you bring out all the stars in there seasons? Lead the constellations?
Give food to the raven when her young ones cry?
Can you hunt for the prey of a lion? Satisfy the hunger of a young lion?
Give the horse its strength with a neck like thunder?
Chorus
How far have you walked in search of the depths of it all?
Have you ever entered the springs of the ocean?
Repeat Chorus x 2
