It Is Not Death to Die

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

(CHORUS) 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

In loving memory of a dear friend and brother in Christ who met his Savior face to face this week. Thank you Ray Carter for being a walking testimony and example of Christ. You were refreshing, funny, encouraging, supporting, wise, and a joy to be with. Thank you friend for walking the walk. Selfishly we desire to have you still here, but we know it is not goodbye but “see you soon” because of the love of Jesus Christ on the cross of Calvary. So thankful for His love and hope we have in Him. It was a beautiful day of rejoicing! Til we meet again brother.


In Christ I am SHE {Saved. Hopeful. Empowered.}
