We Came from Dust

We came from dust
as small as a  grain of sand
we were created by Gods'  almighty hand
on the journey of life earthly things
will rot rust decay and wither away
but Gods' Word will always stay
one day we will return to the ground
and our spirit will got o heaven to reside
with our Lord Jesus by our side
Gods' creation is beautiful made from dust
as small as a grain of sand
Gods' love is the greatest thing this I have found
we come from dust and one day we will return to the ground.   Amen


  ECC 12:7 and the dust returns to the ground it came from,
    and the spirit returns to God who gave it.

By the sweat of your brow
    you will eat your food
until you return to the ground,
    since from it you were taken;
for dust you are


Psalm 103   

13 As a father has compassion on his children,
    so the Lord has compassion on those who fear him;
14 for he knows how we are formed,
    he remembers that we are dust.
15 The life of mortals is like grass,
    they flourish like a flower of the field;
16 the wind blows over it and it is gone,
    and its place remembers it no more.
17 But from everlasting to everlasting
    the Lord's love is with those who fear him,
    and his righteousness with their children's children—
18 with those who keep his covenant
    and remember to obey his precepts.
    and to dust you will return.”    Amen
