A wise person thinks a lot about death (Ecclesiastes 7:4; NLT).

…you hold my right hand (Psalm 73:23; NLT).

…I will live in the house of the LORD forever (Psalm 23:6; NLT).

…the spirit returns to God who gave it (Ecclesiastes 12:7; NIV).

Clouds and thick darkness surround him (Psalm 97:2; NIV).

The eternal God is your refuge, and his everlasting arms are under you (Deuteronomy 33:27; NLT).

Come, death, my friend,
Take my left hand,
For God, who holds the right,
Won’t let it go.

Come, death, my shadow,
Take my arm,
And guide me to his house
For evermore. 

Come, death, my shepherd,
Take my soul,
And lead me to the one
Who gave me life.

Come, death, my saviour,
Take me home,
Beyond the darkness,
To his everlasting arms.
