Dust To Dust

From the ground with dust, formed man.

Oh, this world that God began.

He had only asked for trust.

Ashes to ashes, dust to dust.


And of the fruit, creation ate -

so plowed he fields, outside the gate.

Was from the garden thrown, unjust?

Ashes to ashes, dust to dust.


Man confused, but thought so great -

so man, an idol did create -

which then decayed in rot and rust.

Ashes to ashes, dust to dust.


So ascertain his final fate -

for man still thinks at this late date,

that knowledge proves he's so robust.

Ashes to ashes, dust to dust.


The clock keeps ticking - marches on.

It's certain who we call upon.

Into the future we are thrust -

Ashes to ashes, dust to dust.


Close it now, the vast division,

God or self, it's your decision.

Life moves swiftly, dawn to dusk.

Ashes to ashes, dust to dust.
