My purpose in life as time goes on,
Is not to perish with the passing
Like the soulless things that makes
And the gold that glitterSj until
tarnished with rust.
The dew drops purpose is to vanish
And likewise a tear drop, or the day
But you and your life will forever
After other things have faded and
A new day is born, 'tis morning,
With brightest jewels, crowning ad
It's dawn changes into a noontide
Then eventide and the day goes by.
While loving and living through life's
I would pay the price that others
Weep when other weep or sing a joy
And stand with the fighting ranks,
Though the battle may be long.
There's, a purpose for man's life'
God knows his worth,
As he knows eternity and the time
He hath measured the sunrise of
man's purposed goal
And builded a home, a temple for
