BODY, SPIRIT

God clothed that vibrant spirit with

A body made from dust!

As dust we are!  To dust return!

The body it is a must!

.

.

The body aged near thousand years

In ancient times gone by!

But it finally expired,

Just a body it would die!

.

.

The spirit lives on forever!

Is this hard to contemplate?

We love to do the arithmetic,

Cannot help but set the date!

.

.

In heaven we will be dateless,

No need to count the hours,

The days, the months, the years,

Eternity it is ours

.

.

God did not make this creature

To die eternally.

He knew us long before He

Ever drew our destiny!

.

.

Of course, it is hard to contemplate

Just maybe we, like flies,

Will stuff ourselves and fly about

Until it truly dies!

.

.

Disintegrate, deteriorate,

No fight there left to see

The pearly gates, the golden streets

Of immortality!

.

.

Annihilation, death of a worm?

No!  Just believe me now!

This spirit just will never die!

The death God will not allow!

.
