Courage and strength

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

Be strong and courageous! (Psalm 31:24; NLT).

Whether we live or die, we belong to the Lord (Romans 14:8; NIV).

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

Return, O my soul, to your rest (Psalm 116:7: ESV).


When it’s time
For me to die,

Please give me
The courage

And strength
I need,

So I can let go of life,
At last,

And grasp your hand
