LIVING THE GOOD LIFE


You’re never bad you’re never mean
You’d never hurt a fly
And though you’re nice and awfully clean
You’re still afraid to die

You know of course it wouldn’t count
Nothing you may have done
Could help ascend God’s holy mount
Without His Christ and Son

So why do you live this way without?
Why do you play the fool?
Why do you try walk with doubt
Living by worldly rule

Of course my friend you reason true
Your thoughts are fine as well
But nothing good we try to do
Could keep us safe from hell

Whatever prize we think to win
However good we are
We’ll die with guilt we’ll die with sin
Without The Morning Star

We’re formed in sin and born in shame
We live condemned to die
Unless we seek in Jesus’ name
Salvation’s throne on high

The choice was mine and now it’s yours
Stand up for Christ or fall
The Truth behind eternal doors
Is waiting for your call

The bible’s here to read my friend
The Truth will set you free
The way, the truth life without end
Awaits your bended knee

poet Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
