    What is Man that though art mindful of him
    What is this creature that thou hath created
    To give you praise
    Yet he strays everytime
    And only when he falls
    Will he call upon your name
    Why do you give him so many opportunities
    To change his ways

    What is Man?
    Man is that creation that God formed
    In his likeness
    That creation
    That God fashioned himself
    Everything else
    Spoken into existence
    Like a poet
    Bringing poetry to life
    On an open mic
    Yet God himself
    Took time to make Man
    And breathed into him the breath of life
    But Man erred
    And went astray
    But God’s love for Man
    Is a far-reaching and merciful
    For he knows
    That Man knows
    That he can call upon his name
    And God will save
    Yet many refuse
    To them he denies the truth
    Of what Man really is
    But to those who do his will
    God fulfills
    His promise in Man

    What is Man?
    Man is he that in spite of his failures
    Know that without God he is nothing
    Not even a man.
