DIRT

God dignified that dirt I see

That lowly dirt surrounding me.

Just took a handful, made a man!

Breathed in life as only God can!

.

.

Bit lower than the spirit-beings

That attend the Father’s leanings.

Spirits, they too, and forever

We will live on, perish never!

.

.

They do attend us for we need it!

And protect us I concede it!

Not eternal (*) for God made them!

To do His bidding, yes, He loves them!

.

.

We too are loved, how can this be?

Made for immortality?

Praise God!  We will live forevermore!

On that fine forever shore!

.

.

But this dirt God dignified

Gives life to seeds dropped inside!

It also works the other way,

As dust to dust the preachers say!

.

.

Nothing magic in that soil,

Seeds germinate they will not spoil.

God made that seed so we can see

Faint sample of eternity!

.

.

Small samples only of the real

Eternal God none can conceal.

He always was and always will be

That is what it means, eternity!

.

.

(*) Only God is eternal, pre-existent,

we are immortal, will live forever.
