God gave to him a lovely place wherein he was to dwell.
But Satan came and tempted him, and that is where man fell.
He lost the home that God had given. He lost his holy birth.
His body to the dust returned; so, man was made for earth
While man may live upon this earth a hundred years or more
He cannot leave it when he dies because of sin he bore.
And all the things that he may gain, he may not know their worth,
For if he gives them all to God, he'll still go back to earth
For man must live a godly life, accept things as they are.
Take all his troubles to the Lord and leave them in His care.
Then, in the future, he will find his sadness turned to mirth
His soul will go to God on high, but his body stays on earth
