Marcus Garvey - Mystery
 
All life is mystery to man

Who speculates the cause,

His final clue is God alone

Who made and holds the laws.

From Africa to Ancient Greece

The light of knowledge flew,

But up to now the truths revealed

Go back to what man knew.



There is a God above all things

His wisdom is complete,

As ages come and ages go

To leave us at His feet.

Eternity will ever be

The gauge of finite man,

For life to him is just a song

In passing with the clan.



We come to live, then go again,

And still some more are we,

As Nature blends in every form

Beyond the land and sea.

We're ever looking on before

To see life's moving train,

And as we go we leave behind

The same old human pain.



Words of Marcus Garvey
