Spark of Creation

This song has become one of my favorites this past year. If you are driving behind me in the car and see me singing out lout enthusiastically you can probably bet that I am singing along to this song. It comes from the musical Children of Eden by Stephen Schwartz. I had the opportunity to see this show live earlier this year and it has continued to stick with me as one of my favorites. The song is performed by Eve who is discovering the creation around her in the Garden of Eden and feels this desire to be able to do more. Its what helps her decide to partake of the fruit of the tree of knowledge to become more like Father.

For me this song gives me the desire to go and explore the world around me, to try new things, to seek to create new opportunities and discover my full potential in life. It's such an inspiring song that "kindles the pulse in my veins" every time I hear it. Go out there and do something, see something, explore something, create something, be something, and remember that you Heavenly Father wants you to succeed.

I've got an itching on the tips of my fingers
I've got a boiling in the back of my brain
I've got a hunger burning inside me, can not be denied
I've got feeling that the Father who made us
When he was kindling a pulse in my veins
He left a tiny spark of that fire, smoldering inside

The spark of creation, is flickering within me
The spark of creation,is blazing in my blood
A bit of the fire that lit up the stars
And breathed life into the mud, the first inspiration
The spark of creation

I see a mountain and I want to climb it
I see a river and I want to leave shore
Where there was nothing let there be something, something made by me
There's things waiting for me to invent them
There's worlds waiting for me to explore
I am an echo of the eternal cry of
Let there be!

The spark of creation, is burning bright within me
The spark of creation, won't let me rest at all
Until I discover or build or uncover
A thing that I can call, my celebration
Of the spark of creation

The spark of creation, may it burn forever
The spark creation, I am a keeper of the flame
We think all we want is a lifetime of leisure
Each perfect day the same
Endless vacation
Well that's alright if you're a kind crustacean
But when you're born with an imagination
Sooner or later you're feeling the fire get higher and higher
The spark of creation!!!
