Ash to Ash

Lisa Null: Legacies (CD2; Song 19)
© Lisa Null

Oh Glory how the word came down
And spoke its blessing to the sea
’Til all the world was rolling round
With life in low and high degree

Chorus:
Oh ash to ash, and dust to dust
Life is but one common strand
Between the future and the past
We travel on as best we can


He set the serpent on the sand
And set the squirrel in the tree
And creeping things on each inch of land
But he still left room for you and me
Chorus

And did he plan it out ahead
Let time and nature do their best?
Did he whirl the wheel of fortune round
Let random chance do all the rest?
Chorus

And if you be a child of God
Fish or mammal, bird or whale
His breath of life exceeds our own
Fin and feather, fur and scale
Chorus

And if you are a child of Eve
Be sure you keep this garden fair
We are the keepers of our world
So praise the Lord who put us here
Chorus

And are our bodies mere cocoons
From which our souls at last fly free?
We’ll break these bonds that hold us fast
And flutter towards eternity
Chorus
