We want not to be ignorant,
About the loved ones who have died;
And if might I sound arrogant,
Deep down I have extremely cried.
We do not want you start to grieve,
Like other people with no hope;
Rather we want you to believe,
That there is no loss as to cope.
We believe that Jesus Christ died,
And then He came back to life;
Although we saw Him crucified,
After suffering from all the strife.
That through Christ we also believe,
God will bring back those who have died;
Through their salvation they receive,
A new life through the crucified.
They will rise and all will come back,
Through Christ become resurrected;
Because of faith they did not lack,
There was no means to be rejected.
Concern not with those who sleep,
Sorrow not since they merely rest;
For when Christ returns they will leap,
And you will know they have been blest.
We are telling what the Lord taught,
Unto you the Word of the Lord;
After death just what has been sought,
But way too many have ignored.
Anyone who is still alive,
At when the Lord comes will not go;
Ahead of those He will revive,
Eternal life He will bestow.
The Lord will come down from Heaven,
When we will hear the trumpet sound;
All who salvation is given,
Shall see Him and be Heaven bound.
All of us who are still alive,
Will be taken into the clouds;
For we will be those who survive,
Destruction witnessed by the crowds.
