God Said to Man, Man Said to God
God said to man "Breathe, Now"
Man said to God "Don't know how"
God replied "I've already shown you, son"
Man sighed "Am I the only one?"
My tool chest is full but my hands are tied
Could've told the truth but instead I lied
My books are worn out but what did I learn?
I smell smoke and fire but what did I burn?
God took a rib from man's side
"This I give to you, but 1st it will hide"
Even though a dam has stopped the flow
I will search for the rib high and low
My mind has all the information I need
To act upright in thought, word, and deed
But until I apply this the way I should
Everything I know is also misunderstood
God said to man "This is the way"
Man said to God "You said that yesterday"
God blessed man with sufficient will
Man walked with God and he was fulfilled
God blessed man again and again
Yet man strayed, much to his chagrin
God put man back on the right road
And gave him the strength to carry his load
