When time was young, man had his birth
From elemental things of earth,
Out of the grey mists, deep and vast
In long ago, dim ages past.

His body still is one with these;
Mountains and rivers, rocks and trees,
With changing things of life it must
Decay and crumble into dust.

His soul, a spark of the divine,
(These walls of clay cannot confine)
Breaks forth, defying time and space,
With the Creator finds its place.

When time is old, man still shall be
Living through all eternity --
His crumbled dust, beneath the sod --
His spirit dwelling with his God.
