Why Death?

The way, the truth and the life!
The way, the truth and the life!

In the day that thou eatest thou shalt surely die,
This answers your question, why, O why?
Rest-home and prison, and the battle-cry,
In the day that thou eatest, thou shalt surely die.

The storm and the tempest, the gunman nearby,
To God’s burning wrath, they all testify;
Disease and the battle, with eloquence cry,
In the day that thou eatest, thou shalt surely die.

A sign of salvation, to God glorify,
Christ comes for his own, for them to die;
A sin-ravaged world, in which all men must die,
For in the day that thou atest, thou most surely did die.

(Tune: None)
