My flesh is dying:
Please make my spirit new.
Then I will constantly rejoice,
Although my days are few.
My mind is dying:
Please make my spirit strong.
Then I will pray unceasingly,
And worship all night long.
My heart is dying:
Please make my spirit clean.
Then I will thank you constantly,
Although you are unseen.
My life is ending:
Please make my spirit whole.
Then I will see your face at last,
As you receive my soul.

The dust returns to the ground it came from, and the spirit returns to God who gave it (Ecclesiastes 12:7; NIV).
