Every living creature
Is certainly destined to die,
And the question in our heart
And on our lips is ‘Why?’
From birth to grand old age
Every life tells a story…
But the chapter that really counts
Is whether we gave God His rightful glory.
We ultimately live to die
As it’s the natural inclination,
But when we die to live and be with God
It’s the ultimate destination.
The culture of society
Usually dictates how we should live,
But it’s God who should take the reign
So our heart pure love it gives.
Unless we’re prepared to die
To our self-centred and carnal ways,
We will continue to be deceived
And by societal norms be swayed.
Our old nature needs to be crucified
So new life can manifest,
As we’re raised with Jesus unto eternal life
To choose the road that’s best.
If we die with Christ we shall live with Him
And the life we now present,
Is hidden with Jesus Christ our Lord
At the point we all repent.
It’s through repentance and through faith
We are then baptised indeed,
As we recognise the importance
Of new beginnings with His seed.
When we die to live we understand
That eternal life awaits,
And when our soul departs from this earth forever
We will see Him face to face.
