Ashes

Ashes, ashes
Our body
Acknowledge our
Mortality

Depressing now
This thought can be
Let Word instill
A turn to see

God sent his son
To rescue me
In human skin
Divinity

He gave his life
So willingly
Upon a cross
Sacrificially

And from the grave
Miraculously
He conquered death
So gloriously

He offers now
This gift for free
To live with Him
Eternally

Ashes on the Forehead

Ashes on the forehead
Reminder to serve
For we are just dust
Nothing deserved

Let the will return
To the humble way
That all we can do
Is to trust and to pray

Deep in the soul
A spark of the light
Through Word of the Spirit
A flame to ignite

Through grace of God
Our being, adore
Grafted in Christ
Now, we are much more!
