When our dying bodies have been transformed into bodies that will never die,
this Scripture will be fulfilled: “Death is swallowed up in victory”
(1 Corinthians 15:54-5; NLT).
1. Death isn’t a disaster:
It’s the final trip we make
When our exile here is done,
The road that all must take.
2. Death isn’t a disaster,
For it brings us back to God
Along the way that all must walk:
The path that Jesus trod.
3. Death isn’t a disaster;
Whether life is short or long
It brings us to his Kingdom,
Where the weak will be made strong.
4. Death isn’t a disaster;
When our pilgrimage is through,
It brings us to eternal life:
United, Lord, with you.
1. I am your guest – a traveller passing through, as my ancestors were before me (Psalm 39:12; NLT).
2. He [Jesus] humbled himself in obedience to God and died a criminal’s death on a cross (Philippians 2:8; NLT).
3. He will wipe every tear from their eyes, and there will be no more death or sorrow or crying or pain. All these things are gone forever (Revelation 21:4; NLT).
4. The dust returns to the ground it came from, and the spirit returns to God who gave it (Ecclesiastes 12:7; NIV).
