BORN TO DIE


From our mothers womb
came we to this life
live three score and ten
experience joy and strife

Life’s end will come
our body will work no more
then death is our ultimate
our closure of life’s door

God’s book tells of judgement
asking us for our say
if take or reject his love offer
will be our word on that day

So born to die are we
in this life that’s me
born to die is God’s son
to make God’s salvation done
