 Sir Ricky's Inspirational Poetry Corner

O Death

I tell you a mystery,
We all will not die;
Looking through history,
The prophets did not lie.

But we will all be changed,
Instantly after death;
With the trumpet arranged,
A new life with new breath.

We will live forever,
And we will not decay;
To bond not to sever,
As we trust and obey.

Mortal bodies must go,
As they do decompose;
As you  already know,
Gone will be all your woes.

Then the Scriptures teach true,
With death comes victory;
Eternal life to you,
By means of Calvary.

So death where is your sting?
To give us victory;
And the last song to sing,
To rid the misery.

The sting of death is sin,
And powered by the Law;
That corrupts us within,
And causes us to flaw.
