It is Not Death to Die

This is a wonderful song that tells of the hope we have in Christ when a loved one goes into eternity before us. Nathan and I performed this the Sunday before Jed's 10th death anniversary and Blane Jr. recorded and edited it for us today!

Read the words as you listen:

VERSE 1 It is not death to die
To leave this weary road
And join the saints who dwell on high 
Who’ve found their home with God
It is not death to close
The eyes long dimmed by tears
And wake in joy before Your throne 
Delivered from our fears

O Jesus, conquering the grave
Your precious blood has power to save 
Those who trust in You
Will in Your mercy find
That it is not death to die

It is not death to fling 
Aside this earthly dust
And rise with strong and noble wing 
To live among the just
It is not death to hear
The key unlock the door
That sets us free from mortal years 
To praise You evermore

Praise to the Lord that death is not the end!
