Human beings considered collectively, the human race or in other words mankind.
Created in the image of Yahweh, formed from the dust
having sound soul, body spirit and mind
First made he Adam, the father of all living
placed him in the garden and gave him dominion over everything
yes, Yahweh's plan had finally began to take shape for through this man the hope of eternal life would spring
Because of loneliness Yahweh made him his wife Eve
who through disobedience caused not only them but the whole world to be deceived
This was the point where man began to fail Yahweh
in exchanging the truth for a lie, they went astray,
believing more in the devil than their creator they were led away
and this is even the state of mankind today.
This then leads me to ask............ what is man oh Yahweh that you are mindful of him?
who after all your kindness chose to worship wood and stone
who is man that you still care for him?
when after clothing him and giving him a home, he runs back into the darkness to rome
what is man that you pursue him with your peace?
when even after providing their very breaths not one turns back to say thanks at least.
who is man that you shower him with your mercy, ?
when after freeing them from their bondage they form troops to go back into the hands of the enemy
Oh Yahweh, who is man that you still give him your light?
guarding his path as a pillar of cloud by day and a pillar of fire by night.
and still he refuses to walk straight,
leaving your path to wander in the way of sinners like hopeless children without faith
Why should you hear their cry?
after rejecting you don't they deserve to die?
who is man that he thinks he can stand against you?
doesn't he know that his life is in your hands and you can destroy him if you wanted to
what is this man oh Yahweh, that no matter what he does you never neglect?
even though he tells you he hates you to your face and show you great disrespect
who is man that comes to you as if you are begging?
the earth is yours, you have much in abundance,
without you all is void and man himself would not be in existence
Thanks to your word, oh Yahweh I know what man is
man is as grass, one minute they are all high
next minute they just wither away and die.
yes in one second their lives can be past
man was created from the lowest compound possible,
so classing him with Yahweh is impossible
of Yahweh's grace men are unworthy, for they were born in sin and shapen in iniquity
and when compared to Yahweh they are three times less holy
man is dust and his frame is weak
he may feel powerful by the clothes he wear and the way he speak
but underneath that pride that makes him seem brave
is a structure of dust that will soon be placed in a grave
although we as men are so worthless
In Yahweh's eyes we are precious and matchless
there are so many times when we escaped his wrath
not because of our righteousness but because of Yahweh's loving heart.
He believes that man can change so he gives them a chance to enter into eternal life
hoping that he would turn from his wickedness and strife
Yahweh doesn't want any man to perish
but into the lake of fire he would go if he wants to remain stiff necked and brutish
man need to realize that they are nothing and Yahweh is everything, without him all life is vain
and there will be no point of existing
man's days are few and beyond the time set for him he can go no further
but Yahweh will live olam lay olam, time out of mind, forever and ever.
