No More Death

He will swallow up death forever; and the Lord GOD will wipe away tears from all faces, and the reproach of his people he will take away from all the earth, for the LORD has spoken. 

Isaiah 25:8

From the moment of birth

a destiny hanges over us

the finality of death

awaits every one of us

And in a mortal life

we must find greater meaning

With the inhale of each breath

there is another second's existence

but the inevitability of death

keeps us pressing on for purpose

And in tenuous life

we know a deeper tugging

We know we're made for bigger stuff

than eating, sleeping, breathing, sighing

these things are not enough

to stop us wondering what's after dying

And confronting end of life

we see God's hand reaching

There is a promise so astounding...

that death itself will have a death...

that we trust in God's amazing

saving faith, our life, and our depth

The hope of eternal life

swallows death with eternity

God will wipe away all tears

that come to us when death parts us

He will eradicate all our fears

forever finding life given to us

The Creator of our life

will forever live with us... rejoicing
