If death shall be an endless sleep
where all pressures, dreams shall cease,
one would never have a need to weep
lying in eternal peace.
If death should bring one to the place
where spirit world doth reside,
let us welcome then that saving grace
with these spirits then abide.
In death I see no cause for fear
when it comes as sweet relief,
instead, I see a cause for cheer
freed from trials and freed from grief.
