made Adam out of the dust,
but thought it best to make me first.
So I was made before the man,
according to God's Holy plan.
My whole body God made complete,
without arms, or hands, or feet.
My ways and acts did God control,
but in my body he placed no soul.
A living being I became, Adam gave to me a name.
Then from his presence I withdrew,
for this man Adam I never knew.
All my maker's laws I do obey,
and from these laws I never stray.
Thousands of me go in fear,
but seldom on the earth appear.
Later, for a purpose, God did see,
He placed a living soul in me.
But that soul of mine God had to claim,
and from me took it back again.
And when this soul from me had fled,
I was the same as when first made;
without arms, legs, feet or soul.
I travel on from pole to pole.
My labors are from day to night,
and to men I once furnished light.
Thousands of people both young and old,
did by my death bright light behold.
No right or wrong can I conceive:
The Bible and it's teachings I can't believe.
The fear of death doesn't trouble me;
pure happiness I will never see.
and up in Heaven I can never go
nor in the grave or hell below.
So get your Bible and read with care;
You'll find my name recorded there.
