But what they suggest is in the same direction. Man’s heart is not like that of the beast. The Lord has set eternity in the human heart, whatever precisely that means. And his spirit which outlasts his body goes upward, returning to his Maker, unlike the spirits of the beast which dissolve in the earth.
And hope in Him whate'er betide,
Thou'lt find Him in the evil days
Thy all-sufficient strength and guide;
Who trusts in God's unchanging love,
Builds on the rock that nought can move.
