I Am Not Afraid Of Dying

The older I get, the more I realize I have fewer days on this earth than those I’ve already spent. That is a sobering realization. But as I think about such things, I am excited at the same time. I know that my Redeemer lives, and that His resurrection ensures my resurrection as well. I tried to capture a bit of that excitement in this poem.

I am not afraid of dying, my soul’s certified secure
My past will never haunt me, and my future’s been ensured.
I have peace beside my Savior – all my sins he did forgive!
I live knowing that I’m dying, when I die, I know I’ll live!

Oh that blessed resurrection, what a grand and glorious day!
When we all shall rise and greet Him, and sin’s stain is washed away!
What a sight as all the nations will rejoice with one accord,
And sin’s curse has finally ended; Eden’s Earth has been restored. 

I shall never fear the devil, let him throw the worst at me
I am safe, he cannot harm me inside Christ’s security.
Though there’s trials and temptations, and each day seems full of strife
It just points me toward my Savior, our redeemed eternal life!

No, I’m not afraid of dying, my soul’s certified secure
My past will never haunt me
, and my future’s been ensured.
I have peace beside my Savior – all my sins he did forgive!
I live knowing that I’m dying, when I die, I know I’ll live!
