How Do You Do That? Lyrics

by The Waiting

Maybe I could understand how You called the darkness light
Maybe I could understand how You made the waters flee
Maybe I could understand how You gave all creation life
I'm an educated man, it's not too hard for me to see

But there's something about You that confuses me yet
First You forgive and then You forget

How do Lord, oh do, Lord, tell me
How do You do that? How do You do that?

It's not too hard for me to see how You stilled the raging water
Not too hard for me to see how You walked on it like the land
It's not too hard for me to see how You woke the sleeping daughter
I'm holding my degree, think maybe I could understand

And I've known your forgiveness for each and all of my days
But the way you've forgotten leaves me truly amazed

How do Lord, oh do, Lord, tell me
How do You do that? How do You do that?
How do You do that? How do You do that?

You know the hairs on my head, yeah, You named every star
But I'm bowing my knee at how forgetful You are

How do Lord, oh do, Lord, tell me
How do You do that? How do You do that?
How do You do that? How do You do that?

How do Lord, oh do, Lord, tell me
How do You do that?
How do Lord, oh do, Lord, tell me
How do You do that?

You forgive, You forget
You forgive and then You forget
You forgive, You forget
You forgive
