John Denver Quiz

For our paths have come together now, where do we go from here?
Will our differences divide us, must we always live in fear?
For there are things that we must move through, some things to cast aside
But our father watches over us, our mother will provide
It amazes me, and I know the wind will surely someday blow it all away
It amazes me, and I'm so very grateful that you made the world this way
