Afterlife

O’ breath of life, once restrained by mortal flesh

You did not fear the painful sting of death

When through the veil, your spirit chose to fly

In search of things beyond the earth and sky

Now breath of soul, near to the throne of God

Reposing, where bright angels feet have trod

In peacefulness, beyond the wildest dream

While living waters flow from a crystal stream

As a loud voice, that calls forth to your soul

Newness of life, my child, drink to the full

For all of Heaven sings love songs to its King

Forevermore, at the end of everything
