Idols of Dust by Raymond A. Foss

The things of the earth
the possessions we hold so dear
idols of dust they remain
returning from whence they came
Chasing the things,
the little meaningless gains
that are of this earth;

Losing sight of the gifts of God
the life beyond the dust of the earth
the streets paved with gold

Walking differently, with the Lord
our way made more straight
seeing our brothers, our sisters
the people we meet on our walk
Lifting up our neighbors
their loads on our backs
journeying with our brothers
following his way of the cross
