Carpenter, carpenter make me a tree,
That's the work of somebody far greater than me;
Gardener, gardener shape me a flower,
That's the work of somebody with far greater power.

Somebody greater than you or me,
Put the apple in the apple tree;
The flower in the Earth and the fish in the sea,
That's the work of somebody far greater than me.

Builder, now raise up a coloured rainbow,
That's something far greater than people could know;
Farmer, I ask you design me some corn,
That's somebody greater than any man born.


Now, electrician, will you light me a star,
That's the work of somebody who's greater by far;
Plumber, connect up the river and sea,
That's the work of somebody far greater than me.
