Lent 3: Friday After Ash Wednesday

Grain’s sown in soil to make us bread;

     Man shall not live by bread alone.

The kingdoms of the earth are dust;

     The Son of Heaven left His throne.

 

Our bones are brittle and will break;

     All of your bones will stay in place.

The earth has cliffs to claim our lives.

     My heart says of You, Seek His face!

 

The desert eats for forty days;

     Yet He will guard You with His wings.

O God, remember: we are dust;

     Beneath Your wings, we sing.
