take the letters 'E' and 'M'
and you will plainly see -
that if you switch the letters 'round,
you'll get a word called 'ME'.
Meaningless, the 'E' and 'M'
unless they're switched around.
They have a different meaning and
of course, another sound.
Now though the word 'ME' supersedes
the letters you can see.
the meaning of this simple word
is greater far than 'ME'.
For 'ME' is such a simple word
and if I have no breath -
there won't be any living 'cause
without life there is death.
Yes, 'life' is even greater than
a pile of all our words -
for living in His image is
as farthing for two birds.
Two birds that are not purchased
will fall to desert sod,
but grace is breath for you and 'ME'
and draws us unto God.
if 'ME' is more than letters,
if 'life' is more than 'ME',
if God is more than life itself,
then this is plain to see.
We all know this authentic truth,
so what are we to do?
What does life eternal mean
and who is God to you?
