Fleeting beauty captured
by the eyes,
Moments shared with others will so soon die.
The more we try to hold on to
things down here,
The more we find pain is mingled with our tears.
For ownership belongs to God,
He delegates His goods.
And it is man, who claims that it is his, And does not, what he should.
With greedy eyes and grasping hands,
he possesses all ,that is.
Without any thought of the real owner, And the God that is!
The eyes, ears, and mouth,
And all the senses that he owns,
The Creator gave to him to
praise Him alone!
The glorious sights we behold
will too soon pass away.
And other magnificent spectacles will touch our hearts someday.

We’ll oh and ah at all we see, taking for granted it’s all free.
Forgetting the Christ that died on the tree.
His death seems too temporary for man to feel. And yet by His Resurrection we are freed.
We mix our priorities, our goals, and our aims, And still Jesus Christ
remains the same.
Temporal, temporal, so much to see!
Eternal, eternal can’t be seen!
The peace sought by every soul,
The fulfillment of man’s final goal,
Can’t be touched or visibly seen.
So mistakenly we choose
Yes temporary things will pass away,
But only His Word is here to stay.
So He calls upon us to seek Him in Faith, And with His love on
Him to wait.
Oh praise my God, in Christ,
He gave me Faith
