"Or was it the song about one day and a thousand years?"

In response to the daughter's question as to why beautiful flowers live only for a day, the mother replies that one day and a thousand years are the same to God.

This song seems to be based on 2 Peter 3:8:

But, beloved, be not ignorant of this one thing, that one day is with the Lord as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day.
