Formed from the Dust by Raymond A. Foss

In his loving hands
bending down and gathering
forming man
from the dust of the earth
given life, animation,
by his breath alone

A role given
from the very beginning
servants of the master
to tend the garden
keeping it, sustain
until our work here is done
held in our loving care
