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.

    From the Casting Crowns website:

    Song based on Psalms 52 and 139 and Ephesians 2

    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!
