Where, O death are you from?
You come uninvited and without warning,
But then even if you coming be announced,
Who can ever hide from you or out run you?
Which corners of the earth do you not know?

Families big or small, poor or rich you leave misery,
You give no compassion to those in poverty,
You recognize not the upright,
You are not shamed of living many fatherless or
without mothers, mothers you proudly leave them
childless.

Where, O death, is your sting?**
A curse borne of sin, you are!
O death, do you even have limits,
Do you ever get full,
Your hunger really its of abnormal kind.

But there are Words I heard, 
Words resounding From the cross of Calvary,
Words saving "it is finished" the battle have been won,
The Son of God has broke the chains of sin, and death,

"Death has been swallowed up in victory."*
"Where, O death, is your victory?"**
"Where, O death, is you sting"**

"The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God! He gives us victory through our Lord Jesus Christ"***

Such is the Joy and Hope of those who believe,
In the Son of God, the beloved of God,
Died on the Cross and Risen from the death,
Destroying the power of sin, re-writing the principles of death,
Now in life we seek and serve God and from death will be resurrected to life eternal!!!!

* Isaiah 25:8 **Hosea 13:14 ***1 Corinthians 15:58
