Body or Soul?

Body or Soul

Are you bruised, dear one,

Your grief too much to bear?

Call out the name of the Son;

Cast on Him all your care.

~

Consider the situation:

Which pain is greater to bear…

A body in degradation

Or a spirit in disrepair?

~

The body moans and groans;

Fails us more each day;

We wear it to the bone;

To dust and dirt decay.

~

But the spirit is eternal

Lives on and on and on

Mark it in your journal…

To God your soul belongs.

~

Thank Him for His love

His forgiveness of sins

The Spirit descends like a dove

New life in heaven begins.

~

Reject His love and grace

You bring forth His wrath

From you He turns His face

As you head down hell’s path.

~

Bodily pain soon passes;

Spiritual pain is forever.

The body rises from ashes,

The rejected spirit never.

~

Turn your spirit to God

Hold to His love and grace

Uplifting as you plod

Towards His heavenly place.

~

For you His heart did bleed

Lean hard into His word:

My grace is all you need…

Peace carols like a bird.
