The Qualities of God by Raymond A. Foss

In being made in the image
the likeness only of God
Man able, to emulate
to mirror the qualities of God

In our nature the abilities,
the potential for good and evil
to change the face of the earth

Left under his command
to tend and care for the earth
to love one another
and the whole world

Corrupted in the power
we have claimed
thinking we are just like God

Able to stand in the place of him
when we are yet made of clay
bound by the limits of our time
our place on this earth below
