Our bodies come from dust, Lord God;
To dust they will return.
Our minds reach out to Christ, your Son,
The One from whom we learn.
Our hearts receive your Spirit, Lord,
The One so many spurn,
But our souls are part of you, Lord God,
The One for whom we yearn.
Our souls are part of you, Lord –
And to you they will return.
You were made from dust, and to dust you will return (Genesis 3:19; NLT).
Simon Peter replied, “Lord, to whom would we go? You have the words that give eternal life” (John 6:68; NLT).
I will send you the Advocate – the Spirit of truth (John 15:26; NLT).
I knew you before I formed you in your mother’s womb (Jeremiah 1:5; NLT).
I yearn for the Lord, more than watchmen do for the morning (Psalm 130:6; NET).
The dust returns to the ground it came from, and the spirit returns to God who gave it (Ecclesiastes 12:7; NIV).
