It Is Not Death to Die

July 29, 2011

When we looked at Psalm 16 a couple weeks ago at Westgate Church, we had a chance to reflect on the sermon with the song, “It Is Not Death to Die,” by Bob Kauflin of Sovereign Grace Music.  Yesterday Justin Taylor featured this song on his blog:

Bob Kauflin wrote a contemporary rendition of the song on the Sovereign Grace Music album Come Weary Saints. You can listen to it below, followed by the revised lyrics:

It is not death to die
To leave this weary road
And join the saints who dwell on high
Who’ve found their home with God

It is not death to close
The eyes long dimmed by tears
And wake in joy before Your throne
Delivered from our fears

O Jesus, conquering the grave
Your precious blood has power to save
Those who trust in You
Will in Your mercy find
That it is not death to die

It is not death to fling
Aside this earthly dust
And rise with strong and noble wing
To live among the just

It is not death to hear
The key unlock the door
That sets us free from mortal years
To praise You evermore
