"MAN'S SPIRIT AND SOUL"
by Tom Zart


The spirit of man will sustain his infirmities,
And if he obeys God's law he will retain his soul.
The flesh of man shall return to the earth as it was,
But for a spiritual life afterwards, is man's goal.

With his soul, man humbly prays to God in the night,
And with his spirit he seeks him by the light of day.
It's true that man may be taken by sickness or hate,
Though only evil deeds can lead his soul astray.

The spirit of man is thus the candle of the Lord,
Whose kingdom does not receive that which is flesh or blood.
The Lord shall preserve man's soul from all which is wicked,
As he once destroyed the evil of earth with his flood.

The soul of man may be willing, but his flesh is week,
As outward he must perish; inward he can renew.
It all depends on the road he chooses to follow,
And the dreams in his heart he prefers to pursue.
