Remember We Are Dust


You molded dust to make a man
A head, a heart, a tongue
But he was not a living soul
Until You filled His lungs
Without Your power all we have is death
Remember we are dust and give us breath

We till the sod and reap the thorns
They tear and scar our skin
Reminding us that blood must be
The sacrifice for sin
You sympathize with what we’re going through
Remember we are dust, for so were You

The tree of life still grows today
Beyond the reach of man
We long to touch and taste its fruit
But no one living can
We’ll never reach forever on our own
Remember we are dust, and call us home

We long to leave this earthly clay
When we are dust no more
We’ll walk with You at cool of day
Like Adam did before
But while You keep us here, Lord, keep us strong
Remember we are dust, but not for long
