All around us and within.
Ever with us, birthed by sin.
All embracing, cold finger tracing
A line we all must cross.
All around us and within,
To ignore it that is sin.
Ever with us, all consuming,
Looming, looming ever looming.
Do you laugh and deride it?
Do you fear but try to hide it?
Is it in your calculations,
Figured out, accounted for?
Is it end or beginning?
Is this life worth the living?,
Beset by Death all around,
Renowned enemy of our souls.
Yes! Live! despite its shadow.
Climb the track though rough and narrow.
Trust the light from life's Giver.
He delivers from Death's jaws.
Through that door a man entered in.
By his blood was doused the sting.
Cruel Death no more can harm or kill
The soul that will turn from sin
