Seek Not Earth

People seek after life from the Earth

The lifeless Earth beneath their feet

The perfume is for only a short time

But your love should never decay

The fire lasts only a few hours

But God's Love shall never fade

Our Father watches always

Not a thought escapes His Sight

His Majesty is met with you

Though billions roam the Earth

He cares for each morning

And if you shall manifest His Ways

Your mornings shall be lovely indeed
