Life and Death

As the ladder stretches to the highest height,
Only in His light shall we see light;
To win this fight we will need his might,
Though He is out of sight we must do what's right.


Heaven is His throne,
The Earth His footstool;
To soften the hearts of stone,
And to make wise the mind of the fool.


Man was formed from the ground on the sixth day,
The Lord brain stormed on the waters around;
To unite spirit with clay.


Into the nostrils of man God did breathe,
From the side of Adam came forth Eve;
For breaking the fruit from Paradise forced to leave,
God clothing them with skins for shame to relieve.


Jealousy over the righteous acts of another,
Drove Cain to rise up and slay his brother;
The cries of Abel’s blood he could not smother,
Lamination in the heart of their mother.


The Lord gives and the Lord takes away,
As man's life is but a day;
His flower blooms then withers and fades,
All man can do is hope and pray.
