"LIFE IS ETERNAL,"
THE GOOD LORD SAID,
SO DO NOT THINK OF YOUR
LOVED ONE AS DEAD
FOR DEATH IS ONLY A STEPPING-STONE
TO A BEAUTIFUL LIFE WE HAVE NEVER KNOWN,
A PLACE WHERE GOD PROMISED
MAN HE WOULD BE
ETERNALLY HAPPY AND SAFE AND FREE,
A WONDERFUL LAND WHERE WE LIVE ANEW
WHEN OUR JOURNEY ON EARTH
IS OVER AND THROUGH
SO TRUST GOD AND DOUBT HIM NEVER,
FOR ALL WHO LOVE HIM LIVE FOREVER,
AND WHILE WE CANNOT UNDERSTAND
JUST LET THE SAVIOR TAKE YOUR HAND,
FOR WHEN DEATH'S ANGEL COMES TO CALL
GOD IS SO GREAT AND WE'RE SO SMALL...
AND THERE IS NOTHING YOU NEED FEAR
FOR FAITH IN GOD MAKES ALL THINGS CLEAR.

LIFE IS ETERNAL AND LOVE IS IMMORTAL
AND DEATH IS A GATEWAY-
AN ENTRANCE AND PORTAL-
INTO A LIFE THAT NO MAN CAN ENVISION,
FOR GOD HAS A GREATER PERSPECTIVE AND VISION.

O SEND OUT YOUR LIGHT AND YOUR TRUTH;
LET THEM LEAD ME;
LET THEM BRING ME TO YOUR HOLY HILL

YOU BLESS ALL THOSE WHO TRUST YOU, LORD,
AND REFUSE TO WORSHIP IDOLS OR FOLLOW
FALSE GODS. YOU, LORD GOD, HAVE DONE
MANY WONDERFUL THINGS, AND YOU HAVE
PLANNED MARVELOUS THINGS FOR US.
NO ONE IS LIKE YOU! I WOULD NEVER BE
ABLE TO TELL ALL YOU HAVE DONE.
