What is Man????

Sultry autumn evening beneath magenta skies
Drinking in the beauty of the of the twilight lullabies
The willow tree whispers in the bloom-scented breeze
And I in my wonder am drawn to my knees

And I cry to You Lord, as the daylight grows dim
What is man that You’re mindful of him?

You paint the dawn o’er a sin-ravaged plain
The sun shines on our doom and pain
Your mercy caresses our every cry
And your grace still blesses a wretch as I

And I cry to You Lord, with vision so dim
What is man that You’re mindful of him?

For all of my hatred You give me love
For all of my failure I have hope from above
I lift to You my defeat and my loss
Then You give to me eternal life through the cross

And I cry to You with eyes tear-dimmed
What is man that You’re mindful of him?

Man is but a worthless shell
Man is doomed to endless hell
Unless he sees his utter loss
And finds Your victory in the cross

I thank You Lord, as daylight grows dim
That You love man and You’re mindful of him

When I consider Your heavens,
the work of Your fingers,
the moon and the stars,
which You have set in place,
what is man that You are mindful
of him? The son of man
that You care for him? Ps. 8:3-4
