Our bodies are made of clay,
As they are molded everyday;
Yet we also have the pleasure,
With Good News our treasure.
A treasure of awesome power,
Sweet tasting and never sour;
But a treasure that God does own,
And has been passed to us on loan.
It was all a part of a plan,
Made by God and was not by man;
To help each and every one,
By the Father and through the Son.
Every day we have stumbled,
Every way we are troubled;
But we are never to be mashed,
Or never hear teeth being gnashed.
Frustrated but not giving up,
Nor drinking poison from the cup;
Persecuted not forsaken
Unto His home will be taken.
We have been caught but not been killed,
Because His Word has me instilled;
No longer are we faced with fear,
Knowing that our God is near.
So while we are still alive,
We will constantly try to strive;
For we live because of the death,
Of Christ from His eternal breath.
