Are "Who Am I" lyrics from Scripture verses?

    When I listen to the lyrics to the song "Who Am I" (wave tossed in the ocean, vapor in the wind, flower quickly dying) they sound so Biblical, but I can't place the verses. I did some searching and only found James 1:6. The lyrics sound like they'd be from some Psalm, and I know Psalm 103 talks about a flower in the field and the wind blowing over it. I suppose the easiest explanation is that I'm just imagining that I ever read these words in the Bible, but just figured I'd check with the CF folks for the final word.

    Thanks JWW. I don't actually see any mention of flowers, waves or vapors in either Psalms 52 or 139, or Ephesians 2. I'm sure if Casting Crowns says that's what it's from then I guess they're talking general inspiration, not exact wording, or else this late on a Friday my eyes are buggy and I'm missing some verses. Thanks for helping with my research. God bless!

    Yet you do not even know what tomorrow will bring. What is your life? For you are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes.
