From dust I come, to dust I aim.

Dust I am and dust my name.

To dust you give your name.

From dust spreads your fame.


Back to dust once again

My body turns in sin.

Rejecting your breath

to dust I turn in death.


On this dust you pour

Living water to restore.

You animate this clay

to walk a new way.


From dust again,

New life within,

Your sons and daughters

Made new again.
