FALLEN DUST AND A REMEDY by Showunmi Olawale Michael


We have fallen, all dust, from His glory
Each in Sin’s gutter, has gone astray.
From whence we stood is all wreck and sandy
We have fallen- all dust, from His glory
But His mercy calls, formed us a remedy
So all can once more draw life from His Way
We have fallen; all dust, from His glory.
Each in Sin’s gutter has gone astray!
