Of Blind Pursuit...




How vain the blind pursuit of man
How feeble is its cheer
How pithy the desires that span
This transient hemisphere
Of dust and lust, of sin and sod
If our trust is not in God

A little joy, a little grief
A little youthful glance
Each season of existence brief
We laugh, we weep and dance
But oh, what futile scope we plod
If our hope is not in God

Disappointment and delight
A gasp upon the air
A gathering of day and night
Of dreaming and despair
But oh, what purpose fills our thought
If we have put our faith in God

 He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet
 no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end;
I know that there is nothing better for people than to be happy and to do good while they live.

Eccles. 3:11-12
