from the dust

From the dust there comes a man,

Into his soul God breathes.

It is the first Adam who walks away,

Free choice but with certainty deceived.

This a beginning of a broken heart,

A teardrop upon Mankind,

But God knows man and all time,

Shall not remain apart.

Jesus is the second Adam,

Perfect Word with Man.

He holds in one hand eternity,

The other mine as sure as God planned.

  1. Rick, you are a pretty good poet.
    Did you know it?
    Well, God is good,
    He gives you food
    For many thoughts;
    Which you have brought
    To us all for a blessing
    So that we keep singing.
